Plastic Bags to be Tossed Out of Long Beach Grocery Stores - Los Angeles News - The Informer

Plastic Bags to be Tossed Out of Long Beach Grocery Stores - Los Angeles News - The Informer

Following the footsteps of the County of L.A, the city of Long Beach tonight will likely ban plastic bags at grocery stores -- meaning it will be bring-your-own reusable bag or pay for paper ones.

The Long Beach City Council already approved the rule 6-2 but will have to affirm it at tonight's meeting in order for it to go into effect Aug. 1 at large chain stores.

Smaller stores will have until Jan. 15 to phase out their own plastic bags.

About 315 business will be affected.
