Plastic Pollution Reduction Act

userway ADA

The State of Colorado’s Plastic Pollution Reduction Act (also known as the PPRA, or House Bill 21-1162) was passed in 2021 to reduce and mitigate plastic pollution in Colorado. Starting January 1, 2023, paper and plastic checkout bags distributed at large Colorado retailers will be charged a fee of at least $0.10 per bag. Eagle County Government has implemented the minimum fee of $0.10 per bag for those businesses that are not exempt and are located in unincorporated Eagle County. In 2024, the PPRA will expand to ban plastic bags and also ban expanded polystyrene (Styrofoam) containers.
