The ordinance bans the use of single-use plastic carryout bags and mandates a minimum charge of 10 cents for any single-use paper bags. Small produce bags will still be available.
Says Culver City Councilmember (and Vice Mayor) Meghan Sahli-Wells: "I'm so excited to finally roll out the ban! It's something on which I've been working with Transition Culver City since before I was elected." You can watch a video on Transition Culver City's 2010 efforts HERE.
Smaller stores in Culver City, such as convenience stores, have until June 14th, 2014, (a year from the ordinance's effective date) to comply.
The ordinance affects approximately 72 retailers in Culver City. Los Angeles' similar ban goes into effect in January.
