Greenwood Village Bag Fee
Place a Ten Cent Fee on Disposable Bags in Greenwood Village
1 Trillion plastic bags are used each year and only 1-3% are recycled
These bags end up in landfills or often make their way to the ocean where they never decompose but only photodegrade into smaller bits, clogging the ecosystem and, when ingested, making their way up the food chain.
This fee is a 10 cent fee on plastic and paper bags at grocery stores. The fee will not include produce bags, bulk food bags, or bags used to wrap meat. If you bring a reusable bag, you will not be charged 10 cents per bag.
