Addressing questions about questions about bag tags
Oxford County acknowledges that people have questions and concerns about our continued requirement for waste bag tags. Based on this feedback, we are reviewing the ongoing requirement for bag tags. Bag tags are available where many shop for food, gasoline and convenience items and can be purchased on those outings. We recognize some residents who are in self-isolation may not have such access; for those specific residents, we ask you please contact us directly. Read the statement (March 23)
