For a few years this was a perfectly good product. But things have changed The tall kitchen bags are basically defective as they tear immediately and for sure have no ability to hold any weight. Either they lightened the bags - made them too thin - or they simply decompose way too fast. If I very carefully open the bag and slowly remove it at the perforated line from the roll of bags, I might be able to have an unripped bag. I'd say at least 1/2 are defective from the get-go. NONE of the bags however can take any weight whatsoever. (And my compost container is small.) In other words, there's no lifting them from container to recycling dumpster; there's no way even to dump them in to the dumpster. Once they are 1/2 filled they have already decomposed too much to be at all useful.
Folks!!! As it is you have a really nice idea. But it is not working! I might as well just use the can unlined and clean it each time.
I have been using this product to line the bucket I have for green waste from my kitchen. I usually empty this bucket weekly and as long as the green waste is not too wet the bag will last for the full week. I have to be sure the daily paper filter with ground coffee is well drained as this is the item that can be too wet and causes the bag to leak. Good product that makes my green waste bucket's clean up so much easier.
I keep a compost container in my kitchen that I empty about once a week. I have used BioBags for the past two years to line my pail. The bags keep the sides of my container clean, but they will often leak out the bottom. I consider this an acceptable trade off since I can throw the bags in my outdoor compost bin and have them reliably decompose. As long as you turn your compost regularly, these bags break down in a reasonable amount of time.
