Durango latest to add disposable bag fee

DURANGO — Durango is the latest Colorado town to approve a fee on disposable shopping bags.

The Durango Herald reports that the Durango City Council voted 4-1 in favor a 10-cent fee in four large stores on paper and plastic disposable shopping bags.

The fees will apply to a Durango Walmart and three grocery stores — two City Markets and an Albertsons.

The newspaper reports that Tuesday’s vote brought passionate advocates on both sides.

Bag-fee opponents have 30 days to collect petition signatures to repeal the disposable-bag fee or trigger a referendum on the issue.
