  • Vermont on The Verge of a Plastic Bag Ban or Fee?

    Vermont has considered measures to ban or levy fees on disposable plastic bags for many years, but two proposals in Vermont could put an end to, or at least significantly reduce the use of disposable bags. One measure would ban single-use plastic bags and nonrecyclable paper bags. The second measure would impose a 10-cent fee per bag handed out at the checkout. Both proposals have already missed key legislative deadlines, so they will not pass during this session. The earliest a ban or fee could pass would be 2018.
