A bear of a problem at Aspen's recycling center

Sep 26, 2017

Bear activity in downtown Aspen is at an all time high this fall, and officials are urging people to secure their trash. Bad human behavior at the recycling center on Rio Grande Place is proving to be a challenge for Liz Chapman, who is the city’s waste reduction and environmental health specialist. Each morning, she picks up garbage that bears got into. Aspen Public Radio’s Carolyn Sackariason joined her to talk about the problem.
