In February 2023 Aspen City Council adopted a new ordinance that prohibits organic material, such as food, from disposal as landfill trash. Organics must be alternatively disposed of as compost, or donation for people or animals.

This ordinance has 3 phases:
1. Contact the following waste management companies to request a compost container and compost pickup service:
2. Contact email@example.com for free green Slim Jims for your kitchen and bar to separate compost.
3. Order compostable trash bags from your major food supplier. Not a requirement but can help reduce mess and odor.
4. Train your staff regarding the difference between your 3 waste sources. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to have city staff provide trainings in English and Spanish.
Contact a local food rescue service to donate non-expired foods.
All organic material. Anything that was once alive, is organic.
