Black bags packaging guide

Refuse sacks are disposable bags used to contain rubbish.

Refuse bags are useful to line the insides of waste containers to prevent the insides of the container from becoming coated in waste material.

Refuse sacks are made out of plastic and are typically black in colour.

Plastic refuse sacks are a convenient and sanitary way of handling rubbish.

Plastic refuse bags are lightweight and are useful for messy or wet rubbish.

Refuse bags are often used for lining litter or rubbish bins.

Refuse refuse sacks can be incinerated with their contents in appropriate facilities.

Most commonly the plastic used to make bin bags are LDPE, LLDPE or HDPE.
