- Washington Statewide Plastic Bag Ban (RCW 70A.530) Updates
- As you are hopefully aware, the statewide single-use plastic bag ban is scheduled to go into effect when the COVID-19 state of emergency declared in RCW 43.06.210 is lifted or otherwise altered by the Governor's office. At such time, we would like to make sure local governments have the opportunity to engage with businesses as they adjust to the new requirements.
- With input and feedback from stakeholders statewide, Ecology published a downloadable and customizable toolkit of outreach materials for business owners and the public to understand the most critical elements of the statewide bag ban. This toolkit is available on the Ecology Bag Ban Webpage and will be translated into 23 different languages in the next few months.
- Ecology is aware of potential issues with paper and plastic bag supply that may impact the ability of some businesses to comply with the ban. As such, we are encouraging local governments and businesses to move forward with all planned outreach efforts to help businesses understand the details of the ban should the new law not be delayed.
