Final rules issued on retail establishment carryout bags

The Department of the Environment (DDOE) issued final rules in the August 13 DC Register regarding the ways by which DDOE will implement and enforce the provisions of the Anacostia River Clean Up and Protection Act of 2009 under its purview.   The final rules also implement the various provisions of the act including charging customers a five cent fee for each disposable carryout bag they receive, authorizing retail venues to keep a portion of the five cent fee charged to customers, and allowing retailer to credit customers who use their own carryout bags.
