Black biodegradable refuse sack features

  • Eco-friendly black refuse sack suitable for regular or large waste bins.
  • Made of polythene containing an additive that accelerates the degradation process.
  • Shelf life of one year - similar strengths and properties as regular polythene waste sacks during this period.
  • Biodegradable additive causes waste sack to rapidly break down and then biodegrade after 12 months.
  • Will biodegrade into carbon dioxide (CO2), water and humus within 2-5 years, depending on disposal conditions.
  • Can be recycled with other polythene sacks before degradation process begins (details below).

Storage instructions and shelf life

The bio-additive contained in these bags that accelerates the degradation process can also be triggered by prolonged exposure to direct sunlight or heat.

As a result, please store these bags in a cool, dry place and in their original packaging, to maximise their shelf life (12 months from date of manufacture).

Biodegradable waste sacks - how to dispose

  • Industrial compost - Please do not dispose of these waste bags in your food waste collection, as they are not suitable for industrial composting. Instead, try our range of compostable waste bags.
  • Home compost - This bag may be suitable composting at home if the conditions are correct - presence of oxygen, heat, light, mechanical stress and microorganisms - but please note that this process could take several years.
  • Recycling - This waste bag is suitable for recycling with other polythene bags if it is disposed of before it begins to degrade.
  • General waste - If this bag is disposed of in your general waste collection, it will break down in landfill more rapidly than regular polythene waste sacks.
