Los Altos Plastic Bag Ban by July 2014

Expect a Los Altos plastic bag ban and polystyrene foam take-out ban in Los Altos by July 2014. To comply with San Francisco Regional Water Quality Board requirements to reduce storm water pollution by 40%  the City of Los Altos will have to take a number of measures including banning the bags and take out containers at the six big grocery stores.  Three citizens spoke at the Jan. 10 Los Altos City Council meeting urging a sooner adoption of the ban and applying the ban to more than just the six big groceries stores in the city.
