- The material must disintegrate so that at least 90% of it passes through a 2mm x 2mm mesh after 12 weeks.
- At least 90% of the material must biodegrade into carbon dioxide (CO2), water and biomass within six months.
- The material must not negatively any compost to which it is added and must adhere to strict limits for toxic elements.
Strong green compostable waste sack - strorage instructions
These compostable waste sacks should be used within 12 months. To maximise shelf life, we recommend that they are stored in their original packaging in a cool, dry place and used within 12 months.
Strong green compostable waste sack - disposal options
These compostable waste sacks should be disposed of in your food waste bin, as they are designed to fully biodegrade in an industrial composting unit (see EN13432).
The sacks are also suitable for disposal in a domestic compost unit, but the biodegradation process will take much longer (does not meet EN13432 timescales).
These bags are not suitable for recycling so, if you are not able to compost them, please thrown them in your regular waste.
