L.A. County Bans Plastic Bags
November 16, 2010 § 2 Comments
Today, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted 3-1 to ban plastic bags. The ban takes effect July 2011, and only applies to unincorporated county areas, including East L.A., Altadena, Rancho Dominguez, Hacienda Heights, and similar unincorportated locations. It does not apply to cities within the county, including Los Angeles, Long Beach, etc. This is great news, given the way that plastic bags plague our urban creeks and rivers. Creek Freak doffs our cap to Supervisors Molina, Ridley-Thomas and Yaroslavsky who passed the county ban.
