Title
Ordinances to Ban Plastic Carryout Bags in Los Angeles County
Description
The project consists of an ordinance adopted by the City of South Pasadena, based on the Los Angeles County model ordinance adopted on November 16, 2010, to ban the issuance of plastic carry-out bags and place a charge of $0.10 on paper carryout bags at certain retail establishments in the City of South Pasadena. By ensuring that certain retail establishments will not distribute or make available to customers any plastic carryout bags, including compostable or biodegradable plastic carry-out bags, the ordinance aims to significantly reduce the number of plastic carry-out bags that are disposed of or that enter the litter stream in the City. The retail establishments that will be affected by the ordinance include any that: (1) Have a gross annual sales of two million dollars ($2,000,000), or more, and which sell a line of dry grocery, canned goods, or non food items and some perishable items; or (2) Are buildings with over 10,000 square feet of retail space that generate sales or use tax pursuant to the Bradley-Burns Uniform Local Sales and Use Tax Law and have a pharmacy licensed pursuant to Chapter 9 of Division 2 of the Business and Professions Code. The ordinance will also ban the issuance of plastic carryout bags and place a charge of $0.10 on the issuance of paper carryout bags at the drug stores, pharmacies, supermarkets, grocery stores, convenience food stores, food marts, or other entities engaged in the retail sale of a limited line of goods that generally includes milk, bread, soda, and snack foods, including stores with a Type 20 or 21 license issued by the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.
