January 11, 2013 by adminify

Belmont, along with other Peninsula cities will become plastic-bag-free zones…as of Earth Day this year (April 22)!

On Tuesday evening, in a 5-0 vote, Belmont City Council passed The Reusable Bag Ordinance, which means all retail stores in the city limits will be plastic-bag-free. Reusable and recycled content paper bags will still be available for purchase.

The cities of Menlo Park and San Bruno also passed Reusable Bag Ordinances on Tuesday. These bring the total of cities and counties in California with an adopted ordinance up to 58!
