Single-Use Carry Out Bag Ordinance Temporarily Lifted

Post Date:06/18/2020 1:44 PM


Effective May 1, 2020, the City of San José is temporarily suspending its Single-Use Carry Out Bag Ordinance to release retail establishments from the requirement to charge a minimum of 10 cents for bags at check out.

This suspension of the City’s Single-Use Carry Out Bag Ordinance aligns with Santa Clara County health orders that prohibit customers from bringing in their own bags to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and the state’s order from April 22.
