The list now grows to 11, the number of cities/towns in the Centennial State that have said, 'No more plastic bags.'

According to the Denver Post and the Steamboat Pilot, the Steamboat Springs city council voted 4-3 on Tuesday night (May 21, 2019) in favor of banning plastic bags. The ban will apply to the larger stores in town- Wal Mart, City Market, Safeway, and Walgreens.

Starting October 1, 2019, shoppers at those stores will either have to bring in their own non-plastic bags to use or pay a 20 cent fee to use paper bags. That fee is expected to bring in upwards of $400,000 in the first year. That money will be used to support a yet to be created waste diversion outreach program within the city.

According to Steamboat Springs will be the 11th town or city within Colorado that bans plastic bags. Other towns/cities include Aspen, Breckenridge, Crested Butte, Vail, and Telluride.
