Where can I get more information?

There are many sources of available information. Our local NRWS (Napa Recycling and Waste Services) has great information on what we can do with items that can be recycled. Other resources include Californians Against Waste, Clean Seas Coalition and Green Cities California, I Got My Bag (local cities working together to promote use of reusable bags), and “Bag It - The Movie” is an eye-opening, yet entertaining feature on plastic bag use and pollution here in our country and in others.

Our goal is to help ease the transition away from single-use plastic bags, and make sure you understand the ordinance and how it will affect you. If you have additional questions we haven’t addressed, please attend one of the business how-to meetings to learn more or contact us for more information.
