Tall Food Scrap Waste Bags

Compostable  waste bags are primarily used for the collection of food scraps and other Compostable waste for home or community composting.

These Compostable Tall 13 Gallon Food Waste bags are sized equivalent to regular plastic bags and fit most food waste cans. This sturdy bag is perfect for collecting food waste, paper and other Compostable packaging items. Our tall 13 Gallon Food Waste bags are also great for collecting outdoor waste from small gardening areas. Most communities have designated days for yard and compostable waste pick-up. Check to see if there is a program in your area.

They will not decompose until they are introduced to the earth’s elements or micro-organisms in the soil. Extended heat can make the bags feel soft and may eventually cause splitting. We recommend storage in a dry, cool area.

NOTE: As of 2011, The State of California has determined the words “biodegradable” and “degradable” are misleading to consumers, as there is no established legal time frame for either term. They want companies to use the word COMPOSTABLE for defining a product’s ability to decompose in a timely fashion in a controlled municipal composting environment. (California State Law ASTM D6400)
