The New Monterey Business Association would like to remind the Lighthouse District's businesses and customers that on January 1, 2013, in accordance with the plastic and paper bag ordinance passed by Monterey City Council, the cost of paper bags in all retail facilities increased from 10 cents per bag to 25 cents per bag. Plastic bags are still banned for retail use. Please be aware that this ordinance affects retail shops but not restaurants (and all that great take-out food).

Everyone is encouraged to bring your own reusable bags to retail shops. Let's all work together to reduce, reuse, and recycle! For more information on the ordinance, please click here. You can also view the City's 3-minute video overview of the ordinance.
