Alameda County Reusable Bag Ordinance Expanding to Retail Stores on May 1


Since 2013, grocery stores and certain other food retailers in Alameda County have not been allowed to provide single-use plastic carryout bags at checkout, and the results have been great for our local environment!

Beginning May 1, 2017, this Reusable Bag Ordinance will expand to include ALL retail stores in Alameda County, and will soon include all restaurants starting November 1, 2017.
