August 10, 2016 – The Oceanside Council voted to to ban single-use plastic bags in the city. It is now one of more than 150 municipalities across the state who say plastic bags are devastating to sea life and the environment. Oceanside’s ordinance will require large stores, those that generate more than $2 million in annual sales or have at least 10,000 square feet of sales space, to stop using single-use plastic bags starting in January. Other smaller stores would follow a year later.
