Starting tomorrow, New Years's Day, the reusable bag ordinance is in effect which states that grocery stores, mini-marts, and other stores selling packaged food in Alameda County must provide bags made of recycled paper with a minimum charge of 10 cents per bag. The countywide ordinance is intended to save valuable natural resources, reduce litter and reduce the cost to the public of litter cleanup. Shoppers in Pleasanton can carry their own reusable shopping bags to the stores to avoid the 10-cents-per-bag charge. Or they can shop and have their merchandise bagged as usual in San Ramon and other Contra Costa County stores since the new law only affects Alameda County merchants.
