Culver City Council approved a carryout bag ordinance that will ban plastic bags and put a ten-cent fee on paper checkout bags at grocery stores and most food retailers. In December 2012 City Council voted 5-0 to draft the bag ordinance language and do environmental review based on the LA County ordinance model. May 2013 the ordinance was finalized, approved unanimously, and is effective November 2013.
