Disposable Bag Fee - In early 2019, the Winter Park Town Council moved towards its goal of building a more sustainable community by approving a fee for retailers and grocery stores that use single-use plastic bags. Creating a “healthy & thriving environment” was identified as a primary vision for the future through the Imagine Winter Park initiative to develop a new Town Plan. Starting July 1, 2019, a disposable plastic bag fee of $0.20 per bag will be imposed.
