Plastic Bag Ban Goes Before LA City Council

The Los Angeles City Council is scheduled to vote Tuesday on a plan that would phase out single-use plastic bags that includes a 10-cent charge for paper bags and regulations regarding the types of permitted reusable bags.

A council committee on Monday forwarded the proposal to the council, scheduled to meet Tuesday at 10 a.m. The plan would prohibit stores that sell perishable food from handing out plastic grocery bags.

Stores would be required to charge customers 10 cent for using a recyclable paper bag.
