Proposed Single-Use Carryout Bag Ordinance

bagAs part of the effort to reduce litter in public spaces and urban runoff, the City of Santa Clara is considering the adoption of a Carryout Bag Ordinance that would require grocery stores, pharmacies, and retail stores to stop providing plastic carryout bags, and charge ten cents for every paper bag at checkout. 

As of June 16, 2014, an Initial Study and Negative Declaration for a single-use carryout bag ordinance were released for comment. A single-use carryout bag ordinance will be presented to City Council for consideration in August.
