Breckenridge Bag Program

10 Cent Bag Program

10 Cent Bag Program

Breckenridge is out to change the world, one bag at a time. Starting on October 15, 2013, a fee of ten cents ($.10) will be charged for each disposable plastic and paper bag used by customers at all retail and grocery stores within the Town of Breckenridge. This fee is intended to encourage the use of reusable bags and dissuade the use of disposable bags, thereby furthering the Town’s sustainability efforts. Customers who use reusable bags at checkout will not be charged the $.10 per bag fee. Reusable “Breckenridge Bags” are available at select retail stores, at front desks of participating lodging companies, and on supporting lodging shuttles. Fee revenues are used to promote the use of reusable bags. Find out more at www.sustainablebreck.com.
