(Towson, MD) -- Baltimore County's so-called "Bring Your Own Bag Act" takes effect today.

The ban prohibits single-use plastic bags at many establishments in Baltimore County and imposes a five-cent fee for reusable or paper bags.

The law will exempt some paper bags from the five-cent surcharge, such as those used to package prescriptions at pharmacies.

Anne Arundel County will enact a similar law next year.
