Violation 4(a): Distribution of a Single Use Bag

Upon inspection of your business, it was determined that single-use carryout bags were being sold for the purposes of transporting food or merchandise from your retail store.

Per the Reusable Bag Ordinance 2012-2, "No Store shall provide single-use carryout bags to a customer at the check stand, cash register, point of sale or other location for the purposes of transporting food or merchandises out of the Store."

How to Correct: 
  • Cease and desist distribution of single-use carryout bags.
  • Purchase and start selling reusable or recycled paper bags which are compliant with Ordinance 2012-02.

Be sure your bags meet the current specifications for compliant paper bags and reusable bags.
