Do you take plastic? L.A. County bans single-use bags in unincorporated areas
Hoorah for Hollywood and now let’s cheer the L.A. County Board of Sups as well … Remember all the way back two weeks ago, when Prop. 26 was defeated?

That means the ban, which begins January 1, 2012, will not affect cities.
As a fly fisherman, you know you’re sick and tired of seeing trash in the Glendale Narrows, especially after a storm. So it should be worth it to either take your friggin’ bags with you on grocery runs, or pony up the dime that grocery stores will be able to charge for green bags.
Read all about it on L.A. Creek Freak, a thoroughly entertaining blog about the river.
See you on the river, Jim Burns
