Your business completes the City of Steamboat Springs Application and Voluntary Agreement agreeing not to provide disposable plastic carry-out bags, and to collect a waste reduction fee of 20¢/disposable paper bag provided.
Once a year, submit a report to the City detailing fees collected through paper bag distribution and the use of these funds for eligible purposes *
* Details can be found in the Application and Voluntary Agreement
As an opt-in partner, your business gets to keep the entire 20¢ fee.
No. The fees collected must be used only for the pillowing purposes, per Section 19-204 of the Code:
Yes. Customers that can provide evidence that he or she is a participant in a Colorado Food Assistance Program. (Section 19-206) are exempt from the disposable paper bag fee.
If your business do not fill out the application and agree to the 20¢/paper bag fee requirements, the amount charged for paper bags is considered a sale, and is subject to sales tax that will need to be reported and remitted to the City. In addition, your business may not communicate that it is participating in the plastic bag ban/paper bag fee program. It also will not receive recognition in opt-in participant communications, nor will it receive opt-in participant signage and materials.
Yes. Business may opt out of this voluntary agreement at any time by notifying the City of Steamboat Springs
