Alameda County Ban on Single Use Bags

No Plastic Bags GraphicThe Alameda County Waste Management Authority adopted an ordinance to reduce the use of single-use carryout bags and promote the use of reusable bags.  As of January 1, 2013, grocery stores and other retailers in Alameda County that sell packaged food can no longer provide single-use plastic carryout bags, nor can they distribute paper bags or reusable bags for free at checkout. 

A reusable bag can replace more than 600 single-use plastic bags over its lifetime. Shopping with reusable bags helps reduces litter and waste, protects creeks and the bay, and conserves natural resources.

For more information visit www.ReusableBagsAC.org or www.igotmybag.org.
