10 cent bag fee takes effect in Breckenridge

BRECKENRIDGE — A disposable bag fee of 10 cents per bag is taking effect at all retail and grocery stores in Breckenridge.

The Summit Daily reports that Breckenridge officials are marking Tuesday’s change by declaring it “Reusable Bag Day”. The 10-cent fee applies to most paper and plastic bags.

Breckenridge officials ordered 50,000 reusable “Breck Bags” to launch the effort. The bags are on sale for 99 cents each.

The bag fee was supposed to go into effect Oct. 1, but the town council extended the start date in order to have more time to educate the public.

Revenues from the fee are used to provide public information about the fee and promote the use of reusable bags.
