Local Measures

City of Newport

Regulating Single-Use Plastic Carryout Bags and Paper Bags.


Shall retail establishments, except restaurants, be prohibited from distributing single-use plastic carryout bags and required to charge for paper bags?


The City Council established a task force to study and recommend a community plan for single-use plastic carryout bags. The Plastic Bag Community Plan Task Force recommended the City Council prohibit retail establishments from distributing single-use plastic carryout bags and require those establishments to charge for paper bags. City Council held two public hearings to consider whether to adopt city code changes as recommended by the Task Force. The Council decided to refer the question to the voters. If approved by the voters, the code will prohibit retail establishments in the City of Newport from providing single-use plastic carryout bags at the time of checkout (point of sale) and require those establishments to charge at least five cents for a paper bag. The Ordinance will not apply to establishments that primarily prepare food or drink or to prescription bags. Customers using a voucher issued under Oregon's Women, Infants, and Children program will not be required to pay for bags. Violation of the Ordinance after six months could result in penalties of up to $100 per violation.
