The City of Aspen’s recycling ordinance prohibits anyone from throwing away grass and leaves in the trash. This is because organic wastes make up the second largest volume of material at the landfill. If your hauler finds grass and leaves in your trash, they will not pick it up and will leave an audit card instructing you to call the Environmental Health Department.
To properly dispose of grass and leaves:
Four Bin Recycling
Single Stream Recycling
Yard Waste Recycling
