County to Distribute Canvas Bags Ahead of July 1 Plastic Bag Ban

Attention Shoppers! Starting July 1, 2011, carryout plastic bags will be history in stores located in unincorporated Los Angeles County! Bring your reusable bags every time you shop to avoid a 10 cent charge for paper bags.

Staff from the Department of Public Works will be on hand at several Fourth District supermarkets to hand out canvas bags on a first-come first- serve basis from 10:00am to 3:00pm. For more information, visit About the Bag.
