Reusable Bag Program

In an effort to conserve resources and reduce waste and litter in Aspen, the free distribution of single-use plastic bags is not permitted in our local grocers.

Although you can pay $0.20 per bag for the use of disposable, recyclable, and compostable paper bags, reusable bags or not using bags at all, is recommended. 

Read the Single Use Bag Study (PDF) to learn more about how the Reusable Bag Program is working.
