Plastic Bags

After September 15, 2014 grocery stores and food vendors may no longer provide single-use plastic bags at checkout (handle-less product bags are exempted).

  • Affected stores and vendors include large retail stores that sell a line of dry grocery and perishable items or have a pharmacy, public event vendors, and all stores that sell milk, bread, and snack foods.
  • Customers are encouraged to bring bags of their own, but retailers are required to make reusable bags available for purchase.
  • Affected stores and vendors may offer recycled paper bags at checkout instead but must charge at least  10 cents for each.
  • Paper bags must have a minimum of 40% recycled content.

Reducing single-use plastic bags will help clean our streams, reduce litter along our roadways, and encourage sustainable practices in our city.
