Here's more info from the city of Millbrae, and see the PDF attached to this story for more details on the ordinance:
The Single-Use Carryout Bag Ordinance starts on September 1, 2012 for retail stores that distribute single-use carryout bags, including grocery stores, supermarkets, convenience stores, drug stores, department stores, home improvement stores, office supply stores, and other retail stores. The Ordinance prohibits the use of the thin plastic shopping bags with handles and the free distribution of paper bags in an effort to help reduce litter, help wildlife and our environment, and encourage the use of reusable shopping bags.
