Fort Collins Sacks Plastic Shopping Bag Fee Proposal

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4) – Fort Collins has bagged a proposal to impose a fee on disposable shopping bags.

Monday night the city council voted down a proposed 10 cent fee.

Opponents of the ban say providing consumers with better information on how to recycle would have a bigger impact on behavior than the fee.

People in Fort Collins go through an estimated 22 million of the plastic grocery bags every year.
