Bring Your Bag Everett

Everett’s Reusable Bag Ordinance (PDF), effective Sept. 30, 2019, prohibits retail establishments from providing consumers thin, single-use plastic carryout bags (less than 2.25 mils in thickness) and requires that retailers charge consumers a minimum of 5 cents for each carryout bag they are provided. The ordinance was approved by the Everett City Council on Dec. 5, 2018 and is intended to reduce waste and protect the environment.
