A Colorado law will require some businesses in Superior to impose a 10-cent fee on disposable plastic and paper bags starting in 2023. Beginning in 2024, the same law will ban single-use plastic bags at most stores and expanded polystyrene foam takeout containers (more commonly known as Styrofoamâ„¢) at restaurants.

What establishments must follow the bag fee and ban?

  • Major grocery stores and supermarkets
  • Major convenience stores
  • Major liquor stores
  • Major retailers
  • Other major stores providing plastic shopping bags
  • Restaurants must follow the Styrofoam ban

Reducing and banning the use of these materials will reduce litter in our community, help keep our wildlife safe, and reduce the impact of plastics on our food chain.
