PITTSBURGH , Jan. 17, 2020 (Local News) -Giant Eagle’s pilot program to phase out plastic bags started Wednesday at one of its grocery store locations and a GetGo.

Plastic bags are no longer at the checkout lanes at the Waterworks Market District store, and paper bags will cost you 10 cents -- except for customers who pay for their groceries with government assistance. Customers are encouraged to bring reusable bags or purchase them at Giant Eagle for 99 cents.

So far plastic bags have only been removed from the Waterworks’ Giant Eagle and Get Go. Customers can expect to see them leave some Pittsburgh city stores in the coming months.
