CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) – Charleston County formally passed a plastic bag ban on Thursday night by a vote of 5-2.

The ban only impacts unincorporated parts of the county and won’t supercede any bans that have already passed in areas such as Mount Pleasant, James Island, Folly Beach and Sullivan’s Island.

The unincorporated part of the county includes roughly 31,000 people, or roughly eight percent of the county’s total population.
