Plastic Bag Ban
Cuyahoga County’s Disposable Bag Ban prohibits stores from distributing plastic bags at the checkout. In light of Ohio’s effort to “ban the ban,” the County has opted to not issue fines to stores at this time. Instead, the County is seeking voluntary compliance from retailers. The Sustainable Stores Program was created to support retailers’ efforts to eliminate plastic checkout bags from their operations while educating consumers about retailers who are taking this important step to reduce plastic waste.
