Plastic Bags

Special Directions

Soft plastics, known as film plastics, should be placed in your garbage can, or can be brought to a film plastic recycling drop-off location. Find your closest drop-off location.

Retailers in California are prohibited from using single-use plastic checkout bags in their stores. With this ban, California communities are protecting local streams, rivers and lakes from plastic bag litter.

Paper bags are available instead of plastic ones, and customers will be charged 10¢ per paper checkout bag. Customers are encouraged to bring along reusable bags.
