BOSTON  — The Boston City Council voted unanimously Wednesday to ban single-use plastic shopping bags throughout the city.

The proposal by Councilor Matt O'Malley, a Democrat, bans flimsy plastic bags and requires businesses to charge no less than 5 cents for other types of checkout bags, including reusable bags, compostable plastic bags and recyclable paper bags. Businesses would keep all proceeds from the bag fee.

The measure still requires approval from Mayor Marty Walsh, who said Wednesday he's still reviewing it.
