Aspen Considers Ban On Plastic Bags

ASPEN, Colo. (AP) – Aspen City Council members have changed their minds and are considering a ban on plastic bags instead of charging a fee.

The council was scheduled to vote Monday on a 20-cent fee for plastic and paper bags in Aspen’s grocery stores. Councilmembers decided to put off that vote after some of them said they would rather ban plastic bags outright and charge a fee for paper bags.

According to the Aspen Daily News, Carbondale trustees are scheduled to vote on a fee ordinance Tuesday, and the Basalt Town Council is scheduled to vote Sept. 27.
