How does the bag fee work?

As of July 1, 2019, all retail and grocery stores in the Town of Winter Park will be required to charge $0.20 for every plastic bag used at checkout. The stores will retain 40% of the fees collected and the remaining 60% is sent to the Town of Winter Park to address the impacts of disposable bags in our community.
