TRUCKEE, Calif. (Mynews4.com & KRNV) -- Plastic bag bans continue to become reality through Lake Tahoe communities and neighboring California cities.
Truckee's bag ban ordinance for grocery stores and food vendors took effect last week after being voted on and approved last October. Now, Nevada City, Calif. officials are planning to adopt a similar ordinance this year.
Single-use plastic bags are banned throughout South Lake Tahoe stores, except for restaurants handing out to-go bags. Shoppers in Truckee now must choose between 5-cent paper bags, 10-cent reusable plastic bags, or 99-cent reusable fabric bags.
