On June 25, 2019 Bernalillo County Commissioners passed a plastic ban to go into effect in January 2020. While the Albuquerque city council carved restaurants out of the Albuquerque plastic ban Bernalillo County Commissioners did not. If you have a business in the unincorporated area of Bernalillo county you must comply with the ban. Here are a few ways to know if you are in the unincorporated area of Bernalillo County: #1. your trash can says Bernalillo County. #2. Your address is not highlighted on this map. #3. You do have a Bernalillo County business license. #4. You do not have an Albuquerque City business license. If you are still unsure call 505-468-7777. The Bernco website has a FAQ page.
