Santa Fe County Proposes Plastic Bag Ban

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): Santa Fe County might soon follow the city’s lead in banning plastic bags and other single-use plastics at stores.

The County Commission voted unanimously Tuesday to publish an ordinance that would ban stores and restaurants in unincorporated areas of Santa Fe County from providing customers with single-use plastic bags or polystyrene containers like Styrofoam.

Stores could instead choose to provide reusable carryout bags, recycled-content paper bags or recyclable cardboard boxes to customers. The proposed ordinance includes several exceptions, such as for bags used for newspaper deliveries or to transport toxic chemicals.
