If you’ve ever walked down a grocery store aisle searching for trash bags, you know how many choices there are out there. So, as sanitation specialists, we thought we’d fill you in some of the different types of trash bags available and which type is best for you.

First, you have to determine what you will be using your trash bags for. Household trash, lawn waste, and restroom waste bins all require different types of trash bags. Because there are so many different reasons to use trash bags, there are a variety of them to pick from.

Once you have determined the purpose of your trash bags, you need to think about the appropriate size, with lawn trash bags being the biggest and bags for office and restroom wastebaskets being the smallest. You may also want to ensure that your trash bag is not too big or too small for the receptacle you will be placing it in. This can cause many problems, such as causing trash to fall in-between the bag and receptacle allowing it to build-up.

After you have decided on the size of your trash bag, the next thing you should consider is the thickness. For heavy duty trash collection, you will need a thicker bag. The toughness and flexibility of the bag may be important if you will be tossing heavier items into it.

One of the last things to consider is color: black or white? It’s mostly up to personal choice and budget (black trash bags are typically a little cheaper than white trash bags). But it also can also depend on the location your placing the bag. White bags my be more ideal for bathrooms and bedrooms to keep the bags less noticeable. For leaf collection and yard debris, black bags may allow for more visibility when stored in outside receptacles.
