If you've never taken the time to consider what goes into your garbage can, it may surprise you to know that most commercial garbage bags are composed of paper. In addition, most garbage bags, regardless of their material type, are not designed with your highest level of quality assurance in mind. In fact, if you have any sense at all, you'll already be aware that there is nothing better than a plastic trash bag in terms of superior durability and superior quality overall. However, when it comes to garbage bin or garbage bag resins, you'll find that plastic bags can get away from you if you aren't careful.
One of the main differences between a plastic bag and a garbage bag is the thickness of the material. In general, garbage bag liners are made of polypropylene, which is usually a high-quality resin that's preferred due to its strength and tear resistance. In addition, there are three main classes of polypropylene resins used to make garbage bags: low-density polypropylene (LDPE), medium-density polypropylene (MDPE), and high-density polypropylene (HDPE). The difference between these three types is the amount of surface area devoted to each type, as well as the density and levels of plasticizers used.
Another thing that separates garbage bags and plastic bags is the process of how they are disposed of after use. While plastic trash bags can be tossed straight into the trashcan, your average paper bag will need to be washed thoroughly first. After being washed, your garbage bags should be completely empty before they can go into the trash. If they do not go into the trashcan, most garbage bags will contain at least some biodegradable or organic matter, such as dried flowers, peat, coconut pieces, paper, and biodegradable fibers.
