Reusable Bag Program
In May of 2012, the City of Aspen decided to conserve resources and to reduce waste and litter by banning the free distribution of single-use plastic bags from our local grocers.
Although shoppers can pay a $0.20 fee for the use of a disposable, recyclable, and compostable paper bag, shoppers are encouraged to use reusable bags or no bags at all.
