Low-Density Trash Bags

Low-Density Trash Bags

Used for rough objects under tough transport conditions. These liners are very strong and more resistant to tearing, but handle lower load capacities than Hi-D liners. The thickness of low density liners is measured in mils. One mil equals one-thousandth of an inch. In general, the larger the waste can, the more mils needed for the liner.

Suggested Low-D Applications:

  • Sticks
  • Plastic eating utensils
  • Rough yard trimmings
  • Abusive transport conditions
  • Metal with sharp edges
  • Glass bottles
  • Items with rough corners and edges
