The City of Long Beach ban on single-use plastic bags will be expanded on January 1, 2012, when smaller retailers will stop distributing plastic carryout bags.
n May 2011, the Long Beach City Council voted to ban the distribution of plastic carryout bags and approved a 10-cent per bag charge for recyclable paper bags. The first phase of the ban went into effect on August 1, 2011, and has achieved a 100 percent compliance rate for large retailers that sell food and perishable items. Long Beach is the largest city in Los Angeles County to ban plastic bags.
