Single-use bag initiative

Village Code requires Oak Park retail stores of 5,000 square feet or greater to charge customers 10 cents for each single-use paper or plastic bag provided at the checkout counter. The program is intended to encourage customers to bring their own shopping bags to avoid taking a single-use, disposable bag that may end up as litter. The local ordinance went into effect in 2018.
