As of July 1, 2024, the cost of garbage bag tags in Loyalist Township will be increasing by $0.50 per tag to $3.00. The price increase was approved as part of the 2024 municipal budget to help offset increased expenditures related to operating this partial user-pay program.  

The municipality last updated the bag tag fee in 2015.  

Beginning on Tuesday, May 21, 2024, residents can purchase the new green bag tags online and at vendor outlets throughout the Township.  

Residents can continue using their current orange tags up until July 1 at which point they must begin to use green bag tags. Between July 2 and September 6, residents can exchange their old tags only at the Odessa Municipal Office to receive a credit off the purchase of new tags.
