Bernalillo County considers ordinance limiting plastic bags, styrofoam

News

Following Albuquerque’s new ordinance limiting the use of plastic bags, Bernalillo County is considering a similar move. 

County Commissioner Maggie Hart Stebbins introduced a proposal that would cover unincorporated areas outside the city. It would stop retail establishments from giving out single-use plastic bags to customers. 

It would also ban styrofoam containersโ€”a restriction that didn’t make it into the final version of Albuquerque’s law. 

The proposal is set to go before the county commission on Tuesday.
