Would You Pay a Dime For Each Grocery Bag You Use in Fort Collins?

The answer to the question in the title might actually not be your choice here soon. Fort Collins city officials have revived a proposal to impose a fee of 10 cents per disposable paper or plastic bag. 

The goal of the idea is reducing litter in the community and the amount of plastic going into area landfills.With the fee, officials hope more residents will be encouraged to use cloth or woven plastic bags.

A similar proposal was rejected by City Council last year on a 3-3 vote with one council-member absent.

The council might consider the proposal in June, and if approved, the bag fee would likely go into effect next year.
