Likewise, people ask, what can I use instead of a plastic bin bag?
You'll need to collect them separately, as softplastics such as shopping bags, courier satchels,bubble wrap and chip packets can't be processed in councilrecycling systems. Instead, drop soft plastics– essentially anything that can be scrunched into a ball– at REDcycle bins.
Subsequently, question is, what are bin bags made of? Most commonly, the plastic used to make bin bagsis the rather soft and flexible LDPE (low-density polyethylene) or,for strength, LLDPE (linear low-density polyethylene) or HDPE(high-density polyethylene) are sometimes used.

Are garbage bags eco friendly?
Paper bags. From a practical standpoint, paper won't solve theproblem of wet garbage. Ecologically speaking, they havetheir own environmental impacts. Paper bags requirematerials (trees) and energy to produce. And once again, they willnot compost properly in landfill conditions.
