If you need to use a bin liner, these plant based, 100% certified compostable bin liners are a sustainable solution.
While our first preference is composting your wet waste if possible, cutting out the need for bin liners at all, we understand that each household is different and opting for no bin liner may not work for you. When it comes to disposable bin liners, there can be a lot of mis-information out there and as this sector is rapidly developing, it can be hard to know what to look for in a bin liner.
Through our contacts in the industry and our thorough research, we believe that our bin liners meet the highest standards of environmental responsibility available on the market at this time. Our research of course is ongoing and as new information comes to light on this subject, you can be assured that we will always aim to offer our customers the most sustainable choice we can.
60L compostable bin liners measures 80cm long x 65cm wide (best suited to a 45-55 litre capacity bin).
Compostable bin liners need to be treated slightly differently to traditional plastic bin liners as the material they are made from is designed to break down easier than plastic – which is a good thing, however, this may mean that if placing wet waste in your bin liners you need to empty your bin more frequently, as if moisture is added, the composting process may begin and could lead to spills or splitting when emptying your bin on a weekly basis.
If possible, wrapping your wet waste in old newspaper first may help increase the life of your bag by preventing moisture from building up.
