Trash Bag Information
Trash Bags are used in everyday life at home and work. We offer a variety of bags for multiple uses. Online, our trash bags are broken down into three strengths. Regular duty, heavy duty, and super tuff. Below is a brief explanation of each type and its recommended uses.
*Regular Duty Trash Bags - Range in thickness from .35 mil to .70 mil. We recommend the thinner .35 mil bags for office use when light objects will be stored in the bag. The .7 mil trash bags range in size up to a 56-gallon trash bag. The .7 mil bags are still not a very thick bag. We recommend no more than 5-8 lbs. of content weight in the .7 mil bags.
Common uses of regular duty trash bags include individual office desk trash bags, bags for desk paper shredders, great for covering objects, and any dry lightweight storage.
*Super Tuff Trash Bags - Are .9 mil thick and are recommended for mostly solid content storage. Some liquid contents can be placed in the bag, but we recommend mostly solid storage. Super tuff bags are not as thick as a standard heavy duty trash bag but are thicker and stronger than our regular duty bags. We suggest a 7-15 lb. content weight for these bags. They do have a fair amount of stretch and can stretch out if the contents become too heavy.
Common uses of super tuff trash bags include small kitchen trash and bathroom trash use, and recycling bins for lightweight plastics.
*Heavy Duty Trash Bags
- Come in two different thicknesses and multiple sizes. Our black 2 mil heavy duty trash bags are our best sellers. We also offer clear bags in a 1.1 mil thickness. Store-bought heavy duty trash bags range from 1 mil to 2 mil thicknesses.
Common uses of heavy duty trash bags include commercial kitchens, construction sites, large kitchen bin storage, recycling bins, and other heavy-duty applications.
