Thank you for participating.
Richland County is considering an ordinance restricting the use of single-use carryout bags by imposing a fee on those bags after a certain date. To help shape that policy, we would appreciate your participation in this survey about the types of bags your business provides to customers. To help you complete the survey, some definitions have been provided for clarity:

• Fee/charge – Money that retailers are mandated to charge but is retained by the retailer
• Single-use carryout bag – A bag made of plastic, paper or other material that is not a recycled paper bag or reusable bag
• Mil – A unit of measurement equal to a thousandth of an inch. A standard grocery bag is 2.25 mils thick.
• Reusable bag – A bag greater than 4 mils thick, so slightly thicker than a heavy freezer zip-lock bag (e.g., fabric bags)
