Vail weighs plastic grocery bag ban similar to prohibition in Aspen, Carbondale
That's the question town officials are grappling with as they consider a plastic grocery bag prohibition similar to bans put in place in Aspen and Carbondale last year.
Those bans, passed by town officials in the fall of 2011, eliminated the use of plastic bags at large grocery stores in both towns. Small food markets weren't included.
Vail officials this week sent out and email blast seeking input from both Eagle Valley residents and Vail visitors.
Here's the full text of the release:
The Town of Vail wants to hear from you. As communities across the country reduce plastic bags through bans and fees, Vail looks to its residents and guests for feedback before taking any next steps.
In-person surveys are being collected in front of Vail grocery stores and all Eagle Valley residents and guests are being asked to participate in an on-line survey. Log on to www.vailgov.com and click the link for Vail Plastic Bag Survey.
