    Kirkland council OKs measure to curb plastic-bag use

    The Kirkland City Council approved a plastic-bag reduction law this week that will be effective next year on March 1. The city will join Seattle, Shoreline, Issaquah, Mercer Island and Bellingham in instituting similar plastic-bag reduction policies. Kirkland's new ordinance will require large retailers to stop using single-use plastic bags and to charge customers five cents for each recyclable paper bag they provide in order to encourage use of re-usable bags.
