HB 21-1162 - NEW PLASTIC BAG FEE
Effective January 1, 2023
In 2021, House Bill 21-1162 was voted into law. This new bill imposes a 10-cent fee for every single-use bag (paper or plastic) that a "large" retail store supplies to each customer. A large retail store is defined as a store that has more than three locations within the State of Colorado and/or has stores in other states. The stores within our community that this law applies to are Family Dollar, Seven to Eleven, and Subway.
