In response to this issue, 145 California Cities and Counties have passed some form of a Carryout Bag Ordinance. Residents of cities who have implemented single-use ordinances become more aware of the environmental impacts and increase their support for statewide action. In order to ensure that the Oceanside community is immersed in the process, City of Oceanside staff will be providing a presentation and Q&A session at the Chamber of Commerce “Emerging Issues” meeting on Thursday, January 7th at 7:30am. Any Oceanside business member is welcome to join this meeting.
Additional and up to date information on zero waste and a potential single use bag ordinance information in Oceanside can be found at www.oceansiderecycles.org.
