Plastic Bag Report 2012 Update

Publication Date: 11/5/2012
Publication Number: 20127450

The Washington region has become a national leader in single-use carryout bag management.  Concern over bag pollution, particularly for plastic bags, sparked efforts to regulate the bags about five years ago, primarily on the West Coast.  During the last three years, two large local jurisdictions have passed bag-fee laws making the area nationally unique in its application of fees to limit use of both paper and plastic bags.  This report reviews recent local and national developments.
