Bremerton bans disposable plastic bags
SEATTLE (AP) — The city of Bremerton has banned single-use plastic bags, starting in 2020. The Kitsap Sun reports Bremerton's city council approved an ordinance this week banning single-use plastic bags used at many grocery stores. Under the ordinance, retailers in the central Kitsap County city will be prohibited from providing thin, single-use plastic bags, and required to charge an 8-cent fee for thicker reusable plastic bags as well as paper bags.
