Applies to retail establishments throughout the City.
The project consists of an ordinance to add Chapter 8.07 to the City of Capitola Municipal Code to reduce single-use plastic and paper bags, commonly referred to as "carryout" bags. As stated in the draft ordinance, the intent is to eliminate the common use of plastic single-use carryout bags, to encourage the use of reusable bags by consumers and retailers, and to reduce the consumption of single-use bags in general. The project would ban the use of single use plastic carryout bags by any retail establishment (with specified exceptions, including restaurants), require that all paper carryout bags have a minimum of 40% post-consumer recycled content, require retail establishments to impose a charge for each single-use paper carryout bag provided to customers at the point of sale, and encourage retail establishments to make reusable bags available for sale to customers at a reasonable price.
