LOS ANGELES ( — A plastic bag ban already in place at supermarkets in the city of Los Angeles will expand this week to include smaller grocers, officials said.

The Single-Use Bag Ordinance for Small Grocers, which goes into effect Tuesday, means that plastic bags will no longer be offered at smaller markets and stores that sell dry groceries, canned goods or both nonfood and perishable items.

KNX 1070′s Claudia Peschiutta reports the ban comes six months after the single-use plastic bag ban went into effect in January for supermarkets such as Ralphs and Vons, drug stores like CVS, Rite Aid and Walgreens, and some convenience stores such as 7-Eleven.
