Greater Napanee residents running low on town-issued garbage bag tags may want to pick up a handful while council mulls its options for 2024.

Last spring the town implemented a $100 property levy to cover the cost of 25 garbage bag tags per property and mailed out the stickers to all property owners in early spring to cover the rest of 2023. Those who have been using one bag tag a week for curbside pickup would be down to their last couple of stickers right about now. Council has yet to decide if the levy will continue into 2024 as town staff is expected to seek direction on the matter at the next council meeting.

If (council moves) forward with the Special Tax Levy in 2024, we expect that the bag tags would be mailed with tax bills in late January,” said Kylie Huffman, community engagement and communications clerk for Greater Napanee. “We are recommending that residents purchase tags as needed to get them through until late January, but would advise against purchasing large volumes until we know if we will be mailing out tags again.”

As of May 1 of this year the cost is $4 per bag tag, sold in bundles of five or 10. They are available at 99 Advance Ave in Greater Napanee as well as a handful of local retailers, a list of which can be found at
