Walmart dumps plastic bags in Washington stores | Local

Plastic carrier bags will no longer be available at Walmart checkouts in Pullman and Clarkston, a change that will come April 18 at all of the retail giant’s stores in Washington.

When a ban on single-use plastic bags went into effect in Washington in October 2021, Walmart switched to reusable bags containing recycled plastic that sold for 8 cents each. Those bags are being phased out.

As a replacement for plastic bags, customers will be encouraged to bring their own bag or purchase a reusable bag from Walmart (pictured left), according to a press release.
