Bill Summary

Starting December 31, 2023, the bill requires each entity described below to label packages of premoistened, nonwoven disposable wipes (covered product) with the phrase "Do Not Flush":

  • A wholesaler, supplier, or retailer that is responsible for the labeling or packaging of a covered product.

The bill outlines the parameters by which the labeling must adhere in order to comply with state and federal requirements, as applicable, and specifies that a knowing or reckless violation of the requirements of the bill is a deceptive trade practice under the "Colorado Consumer Protection Act".
