Bring Your Own Bag Ordinance

March 25, 2019 9:45 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The City of Minneapolis is proposing an ordinance that would require customers to pay for bags at the point of purchase if they do not bring their own. 

Businesses with a point of sale system would be required to charge a minimum $.05 taxable fee for each bag, and itemize this purchase on receipts.

SWBA is seeking anonymous input from business owners in order to shape our advocacy efforts on this issue. Please take the survey (about 5 minutes to complete) at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SWBAbags by end of day Friday, March 29th!
