City of Aspen Plastic Bag Ordinance in Effect
|Email Page||Print Page|
Aspen City Council voted to ban plastic bags at two local grocery stores and impose a 20-cent fee on paper bags. The ban and fee go into effect May 1, 2012. The ultimate goal is to eliminate waste from the Aspen environment and raise awareness around excessive resource consumption. While the ordinance only affects grocers, other businesses can voluntarily opt into the program. One market outside Aspen City limits, Roxy's Market has already moved away from plastic bags.
Stop by the Environmental Health Department (2nd floor City Hall) to pick up a FREE reusable produce bag (while supplies last).
