What do I do with my existing supply of non-compliant bags?

As an Agency dedicated to reducing the amount of waste heading to landfill, please don't send those bags to landfill!

We suggest the following options:

  1. Return non-compliant bags to your Distributor or Manufacturer.  Let them know these bags are NOT compliant with Ordinance 2016-02 and ask them to stock only Compliant Reusable and Recycled Paper Bags.  Refer them to the specifications and testing requirements for complaint bags on the website.
  2. Donate bags to a non-profit retail shop such as Goodwill, St. Vincent de Paul, Salvation Army, Thrift Town and others.
