If you plan to go shopping in Wasilla on Sunday, remember to bring your own bag.

It's an effort to keep plastic groceries bags from littering the Valley.

In January, the Wasilla City Council voted to remove the option of choosing the plastic bags in an effort to cut down on litter.

The ban begins on Sunday. 

A similar ban starts in Palmer on January 1 of next year.
