240 Litre Brown Bin Bag 1117.6mm – 44” (width) x 1422.4mm – 56” (height).
Made from natural renewable materials, these Brown bin bags break down quickly to nourish the compost in an industrial unit. The Compostable bag keep’s your Brown bin clean, preventing odours by ensuring food waste does not build up in the base of the bin.
Bin can appear damp when emptied but the bag has not leaked it has been breathing, so in a closed in environment this appears as damp on a closed bins walls. A small amount of liquid can also be present at the base of the bin and this is for the same reason.
A kettle of boiling water poured in and left to cool before the insertion of the new bag will address any odour issues. Leave the water in the bin (Yes leave it in the bin) as it will be tipped into the truck on collection day. Why? Well this bin liquid is referred to as ‘Leachate‘ and although very useful in a commercial food waste recycling centre, it is wrong and illegal to empty this often foul smelling waste water down a surface drain in your garden or driveway.
We use the term here of ‘Bag’, as these are bags with good strength as designed for Commercial Applications and not just liners as with the Plant Starch varieties. We found when trialling these Brown bin bags that if you tie a knot to the side of them they fit any 140 Litre bin perfectly. See Video here just how to do that.
