Baltimore County’s plastic bag ban takes effect Wednesday. Customers will need to bring their own bags to stores or pay a 5-cent fee for paper bags. Some businesses are exempt from the policy, including mom-and-pop establishments that have fewer than four stores and the farmer’s market. Last week, Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski vetoed proposed amendments to the bill that would have also exempted liquor stores from the policy.
