Beginning May 1, 2017, all retail stores in Alameda County will no longer provide customers with single-use plastic bags upon checkout. Bags made of recycled paper or reusable bags will be available for a minimum price of 10 cents per bag. Consumers may use any type of bags they wish and are strongly encouraged to do so. Small plastics bags used to protect and transport produce, bulk food, or meat from within a store to the checkout or cash register will still be available free of charge.
For more information, call StopWaste, the Alameda County Waste Management Authority at 510-891-6500 or go to www.ReusableBagsAC.org.
As of July 1, 2011, the City of Livermore's Ordinance banning Styrofoam® 'to-go' containers for foodservice businesses officially takes effect.

The City applauds foodservice businesses that have already discontinued the use of Styrofoam. Wondering how you too can make the switch?
