CEQA Compliance Documentation:
Single-Use Plastic Carryout Bag Ordinances

Rincon Consultants has extensive experience preparing and managing CEQA environmental documentation, including the preparation of EIRs studying single-use bag reduction ordinances.  Being one of only a handful of firms that has prepared a CEQA document that analyzes impacts related to banning plastic bags, Rincon understands both CEQA’s environmental review requirements and the issues specific to the single-use bag reduction ordinance.
