Curbside Composting Guidelines (pdf)
The following haulers will collect compost waste at the curb:
City of Aspen residents may stop by the Environmental Health and Sustainability Department on the 2nd floor of City Hall to pick up a free home compost collection bucket that can be collected weekly by a trash hauler or taken by the resident directly to the landfill for free.
Pitkin County residents may pick up their free compost collection bucket at the Pitkin County Solid Waste Center.

When buying compostable products make sure the product is certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI).
Those products are labeled like this:
