How to dispose of biotransformation bags
To dispose of these Bio-T bags after use (and reuse), we advise that you recycle them. If your local council does not collect soft plastics for recycling, we recommend that you take them to your local bag collection point along with your traditional carrier bags.
These bags are designed to biodegrade if they escape waste streams and end up in the natural environment, but they will *not* biodegrade if disposed of with your food waste, or in a home compost environment.
For packing bags that meet the compostable packaging standard EN13432, please check out our selection of compostable packing bags.
