Culver City's Plastic Bag Ordinance Becomes Effective This Thursday

On May 28, the City Council adopted a single-use carryout bag ordinance (following the introduction of the ordinance on May 13). This ordinance, which bans the use of single-use plastic carryout bags and requires retailers to charge customers a minimum of 10 cents for any single-use paper bags, becomes effective 30 days after the adoption of the ordinance -- in other words, this thursday, June 27!

Supermarket and large retail stores with a pharmacy (I'm looking at you RiteAid) have until December 28 (six months from the effective date) to comply with the provisions of the ordinance. Convenience stores, food marts and drug stores have until June 14th (a year from the effective date) to comply.

The ordinance affects approximately 72 retailers in Culver City.
