The statewide Single-Use Carryout Bag Ban (SB 270) was signed into law by Governor
Edmund G. Brown Jr. in the fall of 2014. Shortly thereafter the law was suspended by a
referendum and did not go into effect until voters approved it as Proposition 67 in
November 2016. As directed by the Legislature, this report provides an update on the
status of SB 270’s implementation and CalRecycle’s evaluation of what is needed to
improve the program.
