Peter Carlisle for Mayor 2012

Mayor Carlisle Signs Council Bill 10

Mayor Peter Carlisle today signed Bill 10 into law banning the distribution of plastic bags by retailers effective July 1, 2015.  A plastic bag is defined as “a bag that is made from nonbiodegradable plastic, and is not specifically designed or manufactured for multiple re-use.”

“We hope people are going to understand that between now and 2015 we’re going to be hoping that more and more of them are going to be bringing their own bags to the grocery stores, reducing the problem that plastic bags are already causing,” said Mayor Carlisle.
