West Hollywood's ban on single-use plastic grocery bags will expand today to all retail establishments.
The city's bag ban initially went into effect in February and applied only to grocery and retail stores that are at least 10,000 square feet. The ban will now be in effect at all retail establishments.
Customers will have to provide their own reusable bags or pay 10 cents each for paper bags. The paper bags sold by stores must be made from at least 40 percent recycled material.
Restaurants and food-service providers will still be able to provide plastic bags to customers for take-out food intended for off-premises consumption, according to the city.
