CARBONDALE, Colo. (AP) — Carbondale town trustees have approved a ban on plastic shopping bags at local grocery stores.
The trustees followed Aspen’s lead, opting for a ban rather than a fee for their use.
According to the Glenwood Springs Post Independent, the ordinance will take effect in May.
Other area municipalities including Basalt and Glenwood Springs are also considering bag laws.
