  • Washington Statewide Plastic Bag Ban (RCW 70A.530) Updates
    • 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, the ban is still scheduled to go into effect beginning January 1, 2021. 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.
