Carryout Bag Notice

Notice Type: 

Carryout Bag Ad




















Effective January 1, 2018

The Ellensburg City Council adopted a Carryout Bag Ordinance on November 7, 2016. The ordinance goes into effect January 1, 2018 and requires retailers in Ellensburg to charge a five cent fee for plastic and paper carryout (shopping) bags. The retailer keeps the five cent per bag fee charged to the customer.

Customers shopping at retail locations can avoid paying the fee by bringing your own reusable bag, place purchased items back into your shopping cart to move them from the checkout line to your car, or if you have just a few items, carry purchased items out in your arms.
