(Tacoma, WA)  --  Tacoma will be joining other Washington communities in banning single-use plastic bags at grocery stores and other retailers.  The Tacoma City Council voted yesterday to adopt the ordinance, which will take effect in a year.  Retailers will be required to charge a fee of at least five-cents for paper bags and other carryout bags, and that fee will be kept by the retailer.  The Council rejected a substitute proposal that would have charged a five-cent fee for paper and plastic.
