Clip | 4m 58s

The City of Denver is taking a big step in reducing pollution and trash. Starting July 1, 2021 – the Bring Your Own Bag Program launches – requiring retailers to charge customers $.10 for each disposable bag they need – plastic or paper. This proceeds the statewide law requiring a fee that will go into effect in 2023 and the statewide ban on all plastic bags, including styrofoam, in 2024.
