Summary of the Plastic Pollution Reduction Act:
The State of Colorado Plastic Pollution Reduction Act, or HB21-1162, was passed in 2021 to reduce and mitigate plastic pollution in Colorado. This two-phased law becomes effective on January 1, 2023, and puts a 10-cent fee on paper and plastic carryout bags used at checkout and for pickup and delivery orders at large retail stores. On January 1, 2024, plastic carryout bags will be banned at large retail stores, and paper carryout bags will continue to be offered for the 10-cent fee. Polystyrene (brand name Styrofoam) containers will also be banned in 2024 at retail food establishments such as restaurants, fast-food chains, grocery stores, and convenience stores.
