Garbage bag guide

The waste disposal
One of the biggest problems of our century is the environmentally sound disposal and treatment of large amounts of waste. In Germany, the Waste Catalog Regulation is the legal basis of waste disposal. The garbage collection is carried out by waste management companies that are in public or private hands. On so-called disposal paths, the waste is recycled to secondary raw materials, the waste incineration plant for energy production or storage in a landfill. For the disposal costs garbage fees are charged.
The trash bags invented the Canadians Harry Wasylyk, Frank Plomp and Larry Hansen in the 50s. Until they spread throughout Germany, another 20 years passed. Today are trash bags to think of no public institution or private household. They serve the intermediate storage and the transport of waste. In most cases, they are considered a deposit in one waste containerused to avoid contamination of the vessel.
The market offers a large number of garbage bags of different sizes and features. The manufacturers use materials such as HDPE, LDPE, paper or biodegradable film. In Germany, a distinction is also made between garbage bags and garbage bags. Waste bags with a filling volume of less than 70 liters are called trash bags designated.

The trash bag types
On a drawstring a colored, continuous drawstring is usually welded at the top. This can be the trash bags be drawn. In the Seitenfaltsack a fold was added in addition. As a result, the rectangular shape has a flat bottom. This type is suitable for angular Trashcanand may also be freestanding depending on the density of the material trash bags be used. Often, a plastic band is incorporated into the fold in addition, which allows a knotting of the bag.
Carrying bags enjoy great popularity in private households. These trash bags are provided at the top with a carrying handle, which also allows the transport and closure of the bag. If the carrying handle is single-lobed, it can also be filled in a hanging manner for attachment to a holding device. So-called Wave-Top-Bags have a stamped carrying handle, which is suitable for transporting as well as for closing. Secondly, used plastic shopping bags are often used as trash bags before they can be used for final waste disposal trash bagor a garbage can be handed over.
In the traditional production of garbage bags, mainly thermoplastics such as HDPE or LDPE are used. Some manufacturers provide their products with an antibacterial coating to improve the hygienic aspect of the bags when used in the kitchen and bathroom. HDPE proves to be soft, stretchy and only slightly transparent. The LDPE has a low density. Both plastics feel waxy and burn without residue.

The use of recyclable materials
Bioplastics for garbage bags can be produced on the basis of renewable raw materials that are biodegradable and compostable. With a share of 80 percent, thermoplastic starch is leading the market. The most important plants used to make bioplastics for garbage bags are corn, potatoes or wheat. In Asia, the starch is made from tapioca as a raw material. The product is obtained from dried and specially prepared cassava root. Further raw materials for bioplastics are gelatine, vegetable oil, casein, Lignin or chitin.
Many households hand over their organic waste primarily in recyclable foil of the brown bin. Several times discussions have been held in the media and local newspapers about whether this makes sense. In fact, the organic waste bag has become a problem for most municipal composting plants. Since the film takes a long time to rot, they must be sorted out by many refuse collection companies before composting, because the urban humus extraction is designed for speed. Ultimately, the garbage bag from recyclable film ends up in the residual waste. Ideally, paper bags are ideal for disposing of organic waste. Also newsprint or kitchen crepe are optimal.
