Orange County does not have a law requiring a five cent charge for paper bags but certain stores and box store chains have elected to charge customers the fee. For more details on the Bag Waste Reduction Law please see https://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/50034.html. Also, please be reminded that return-to-retail film plastic recycling bins will be maintained after the bag ban.
