Document Description
The City of San Diego is proposing to reduce the adverse environmental impacts associated with single-use plastic carryout bags, including plastic bag litter. The City proposes to adopt and implement an ordinance to regulate the use of single-use plastic carryout bags and promote the use of reusable bags within the City. The proposed ordinance would: prohibit stores subject to the ordinance from distributing plastic single-use carryout bags and non-recyclable paper single-use carryout bags at the point of sale to customers, require stores subject to the ordinance to only provide recyclable paper single-use carryout bags or reusable bags at the point of sale to customers and require stores subject to the ordinance to collect a charge at the point of sale of $0.10 for each recyclable paper single-use carryout bag provided to a customer and a minimum charge of $0.10 for each reusable carryout bag provided to a customer.
