Denver City Council committee approves proposal requiring fees for plastic, paper bags

Denver City Council has taken its first step toward requiring shoppers to pay a fee for single-use plastic and paper bags.

The Finance and Governance Committee approved the ordinance Tuesday evening, Councilwoman Kendra Black confirmed.

Black chairs the committee.

“We’ve just gotten used to plastic bags and then throwing them away — only using them once. And it’s estimated that only one percent of them get recycled,” Black said in September.
