Require Labeling Disposable Wipes
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 manufacturer of a covered product that is sold or offered for sale in this state; and
- 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".
