A Conversation for Rubbish Bags

Rubbish bags

Post 1


In your article you say that lightweight rubbish bags (refuse sacks)
ar made from polyethylene a third of a mm thick. This is wrong. This would be 330 microns - the same thickness as builders damp proof course. Actually, refuse sacks vary between 15 microns and 40 microns -
very much thinner than your article suggests.

Most of the black ones are 90litres or 110litres capacity.

There is no recognised colour code, though clinical waste is always put in Yellow sacks printed "clinical waste" and some Red ones are used for hazardous bio-waste.

Interesting site!
