Single-Use Bag Fees

 The Batavia City Council voted in November 2022 to implement a retail single-use bag fee of 10 cents for any non-reusable bag provided by a retail establishment in Batavia that is larger than 5,000 square feet. There are several retailers that are excluded from the fee, including restaurants, pharmacies, and bags for produce, meat, and bakery items.

Retailers will collect the 10-cent fee, retaining 4 cents and remitting 6 cents to the City of Batavia.

For complete details, please refer to the municipal code, Ordinance 22-59.
