Document Description
The project consists of an ordinance promoting the use of reusable shopping bags by prohibiting distribution of single use plastic bags and imposing a fee on recyclable paper bags in the City of Arcata. In lieu of the single use bags, consumers may choose to provide their own bag or elect to purchase a single use recyclable paper bag for a fee that is clearly identified on the sales receipt. The retailer will retain this fee which is a reflection of the actual cost of the single use recyclable paper bag. Certain low income exceptions and other provisions are included within the model ordinance language.
