Carryout Bag Fees Start July 1st in Denver


We knew this was coming!!

Starting on July 1st, you will be charged for carryout bags in the city of Denver. The charge will be 10 cents per carryout bag.

According to 9News:

The decision, recently passed by the city council, aims to reduce the number of disposable carryout bags that are used by encouraging shoppers to bring their own reusable ones.
According to the "Bring Your Own Bag" program website, stores will keep a portion of the fee and it won't apply to bags used to package bulk items, produce or meat. Those using food stamps won't be charged either.
