Bin liners are disposable bags used to line the insides of rubbish containers such as waste-paper bins, dustbins and even wheelie-bins to contain rubbish and prevent them from becoming coated in waste material and getting dirty and smelly. Typically these rubbish bags are manufactured using polythene and are generally green for garden waste, black for domestic refuse for outside bins, and white (and thinner) for office bins or household bins.
Bin liners are widely used as they offer a convenient and hygienic way of handling waste. Plastic waste bags are very light and are particularly useful for messy or wet rubbish, take food waste for example, and are also great for wrapping up litter to minimize odour and contamination. Rubbish bags are often used for lining rubbish or waste containers or bins. This serves to keep the container sanitary by avoiding container contact with the garbage. After the bag in the container is filled with litter, the bag can be pulled out by its edges, closed, and tied with minimal contact with the waste matter.
Generally bin liners have a capacity of between 60 to 90 litres and are about 60cm wide and a bout a metre long. Rubbish bags are typically provided on rolls of folded bags with perforations between one bag and the next.
Most rubbish bags are black but other colours exist and normally it designates a special purpose. A green bag for example is used for disposal of biodegradable waste like grass, fruit and vegetables and garden clippings. Clear bin bags mostly used in offices to help identify what is inside to ensure only recyclable waste in disposed such as paper and newspapers.
While standard rubbish bags can fulfil most requirements of rubbish containment, there are times when a more specialised version is preferable:
Pedal bin liners or swing-bin bags
Pedal bin liners usually have half or less of the capacity of a normal rubbish bag and are generally manufactured using of the lowest viable gauge of polythene suitable for holding the weight to be contained. Some liners come with handle-ties or another means to help closure, and when filled they are removed and stored inside an outdoor rubbish bag. Internal waste bags tend to be white, though colours vary.
Bags for Wheelie Bins
These are large-capacity rubbish bags that can be placed inside a wheelie bin, ensuring the bin stays clean without interfering with their standard emptying process.
Clinical and hazardous waste bags
Specialist bin liners are also available for use with low-grade radioactive or clinical waste and these can also be supplied with specific printed warnings which can also be customised.
