Long Beach passes carryout bag ordinance

long beachAfter months of debate, Long Beach passed a carryout bag ordinance tonight that will be implemented on August 1, 2011. The ordinance mostly mirrors the Los Angeles County bag ordinance, which passed in November, 2010. Importantly, the new ordinance drops the County’s quarterly reporting requirement. CGA will offer members additional information on Long Beach’s new ordinance in the coming weeks.
