State DRS passes retailer fee for single-use plastic checkout bags
Effective August 1, 2019
The State of Connecticut Department of Revenue Services (DRS) recently passed a law requiring retail establishments to charge a $0.10 fee for every single-use plastic bag they issue their customers at the point of sale. In June of 2019, the Town of Glastonbury also passed an ordinance regarding single-use bags. For community reference, the Town has put together an Informational Guide designed to help residents and businesses understand the regulations and differences between both the Single-use Plastic Bag Town Ordinance and the state of Connecticut mandated fee.
For questions regarding the State fee, please contact the DRS Legal Division at firstname.lastname@example.org.
