Bag Bans

LA County Plastic Bag Ban Ordinance

The Los Angeles County plastic bag ban ordinance was the first countywide ordinance to pass in the United States and covered a larger area than any other ban before it. In addition to banning plastic bags and imposing a 10-cent tax on recyclable paper bags, the ordinance encourages the use and distribution of reusable bags in several parts.
