Plastic Bag Ban and Paper Bag Fee

Introduction

In 2018, the Avon Town Council enacted a ban on disposable plastic bags being provided by retailers to customers at the point of sale. The goal of the program is to reduce plastic waste by eliminating unnecessary disposable plastic shopping bags. Avon retailers offering paper bags will change a $0.10 fee per paper bag. 

*Please note, the paper bag fee is currently waived due to the COVID-19 crisis.
