Anchorage became the next city to ban single-use plastic bags in Alaska.

On Tuesday, the ordinance passed 9-2 with retailers and restaurants having to comply by March 1, 2019. 

Retailers will offer paper bags at $0.10 per bag; up to $0.50 or encourage reusable bags. 

Earlier this year, the Mat-Su Borough also banned single-use plastic bags.
