Compostable carriers on the roll - end of life options
These compostable bags offer a secondary use as a food waste collection bag. They are designed to break down in industrial composting conditions within 12 weeks, so can be thrown out with their organic (food) content once full.
The bags are also suitable for home composting. However, timescales will vary depending on the composting environment and will most likely take longer than 12 weeks.
They are not suitable for regular (non-organic) recycling.
