Bag ban passes Anchorage Assembly 9-2
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.
