Waste bags - the best waste disposal tool

It’s hard to imagine domestic life without the humble bin bag. They are a small but fundamental part of our daily lives, both domestically and in the workplace, making how we keep our home or workplace clean a relatively simple task.

Invented in Canada in 1950 and sold domestically since the late 1960s, the waste bag - otherwise known as the bin bag, bin liner or garbage bag, depending on where you’re from - has since become an integral part of every home. If the bin bag roll is running low, it’s a sure-fire addition to the weekly shopping list.

Waste bags - we’re on a roll!

Waste bags are polythene bags that, when manufactured, are usually folded up flat along the length of the bag, with the long edges folded in towards the middle of the bag from both sides.

Having been flattened and folded, the polythene used to make waste bags is then perforated at regular intervals to create the right length/height for each waste bag.

The polythene - folded, flattened and complete with perforated seams - is then wrapped into a tight roll to allow for easy storage. Each roll of bin bags usually contains 50 or 100 bags, each linked by the perforated seams that easily tear, allowing you to separate a new bag from the roll whenever you are ready to use it.

How to use a waste bag

Waste bags can be used in a number of ways, most commonly used as a bin liner to line rubbish bins, but also a handy portable bin or one that can be left hanging or freestanding on the floor.

So there is not one simple one-size-fits-all method to use a bin bag, but the method described below is that most commonly employed - using a waste bag to collect rubbish inside a dustbin. They are usually called bin bags after all!

Take your roll of bags, grab the loose end the roll and give it a gentle tug to tear the perforated seam and separate the bin bag from the roll. If this doesn’t work you might need to pull a little harder with both hands close to the perforated seam.

Go to your waste bin and - assuming it has a lid - remove the lid ready to place the bag inside. Place the waste bag inside the bin, tucking the top end of the bin over the top of the bin or, if the bin has such a feature, the ring inside the lid designed to hold bin bags.

Once your waste bag is placed inside the bin and the lid secured your bin is ready to use. Place your waste into the bin bag as required, remembering to separate out any recyclable materials - e.g. paper, plastic, tins, cans, glass - or food waste.

Keep on eye on the contents of your bin bag over time to ensure it doesn’t get too full. Ideally, you should remove the waste bag just as the rubbish approaches the top of the bag, to leave enough room to tie the bag and ensure none of the waste spills out.

Once your waste bag is removed from the bin, place one hand on either side of the top of the bag, pull together and tie into a knot secure enough to prevent the bag opening again, before placing it in your external waste disposal - e.g. wheelie bin.

You’re now ready to tear a new waste bag from the roll and carry out the whole process all over again.
