SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – Since the adoption of a ban in January 2014, South Lake Tahoe has not allowed single-use plastic bags in grocery stores and at food vendors. The ban was to apply to all other retail outlets after one year, but that ban was delayed by the City Council at that time and then later amended to remove that portion. In October 2019, the City received a request from the League to Save Lake Tahoe to bring the City’s regulations in line with California state law. This law bans single-use plastic bags not only in grocery stores and food vendors, but also in retail stores with a pharmacy, convenience stores, and liquor stores.
