What does the City of Aspen do with the fee revenue?

Remitted fees are used for administrative, enforcement costs and costs associated with any recycling, composting, or other waste diversion programs and activities. The revenue will be put into a Waste Reduction Fee fund only to be used for specialized waste reduction projects. This revenue supports projects, including the annual purchasing of reusable bags for free distribution around the city and hosting the free electronic waste collection event for individuals to recycle their electronics.
