Description

Varying Compostable Bag Bin SizesDue to overwhelming requests from our customers, we are pleased to be able to offer you our full range of certified compostable bin liners.

While our first preference is composting your wet waste if possible cutting out the need for bin liners at all, we understand that each household is different and opting for no bin liner may not work for you.

When it comes to disposable bin liners, there can be a lot of mis-information out there and as this sector is rapidly developing, it can be hard to know what to look for in a bin liner.

Through our contacts in the industry and our thorough research, we believe that our bin liners meet the highest standards of environmental responsibility available on the market at this time. Our research of course is ongoing and as new information comes to light on this subject, you can be assured that we will always aim to offer our customers the most sustainable choice we can.

What makes our Compostable Bin Liners so good?

Unlike some other bags on the market, our bags are CERTIFIED compostable to Australian, European, USA & Japanese standards, which means they have been independently assessed to break down to virtually undetectable levels in the soil and are deemed “worm safe” with no micro plastic residues left behind.

Our compostable bin liners are available in 4 sizes (8L, 30L, 36L and 60L) and are made from 100% GMO free renewable plants and are free from any plastic additives such as Polypropylene, Polyethylene, Polystyrene & PVC.

Our compostable bin liners are certified compostable in industrial composting facilities. As industrial composting facilities operate hot composts of between 50c-60c, our bags will break down within around 12 weeks. Our bags will of course break down over a longer period of time in general waste facilities, however due to the lack of necessary microbes found in these facilities it can take 6-12 months or more for the bags to break down to their natural cellulose beginnings.

Our bags are also certified “home compostable” and can be used in this manner, but like a general waste facility will simply take longer to break down if not hot composted.

IMPORTANT NOTES FOR USE: As our liners are compostable, unlike traditional single use plastic bin liners, it is important they are used ideally within 3-6 months of purchase and kept in a cool dark space, otherwise they may start to break down.

Compostable bin liners need to be treated slightly differently to traditional plastic bin liners as the material they are made from is designed to break down easier than plastic – which is a good thing, however, this may mean that if placing wet waste in your bin liners you need to empty your bin more frequently as if moisture is added, the composting process may begin and could lead to spills or splitting when emptying your bin on a weekly basis.

If possible, wrapping your wet waste in old newspaper first may help increase the life of your bag by preventing moisture from building up.

Sizing Guide:

Although bin liners have a litre capacity mentioned, this does not necessarily match the exact litre size of your bin. Due to the gusseted bottom in the bag, the bags lose a little height when in the bin, so we recommend the following:

8L/2.1 Gallon Liner – 5-6 Litre/1.5 Gallon capacity bins

30L/7.9 Gallon Liner – 15-20 Litre/4-5 Gallon capacity bins

36L/9.5 Gallon Liner – 25- 30 Litre /6-7 Gallon capacity bins

60L/15.8 Gallon Liner – 45-55 Litre/11-14 Gallon capacity bins

Bin shapes can vary, but the bags do fit most bin types if matched to bin sizing mentioned above.

Please note: While we strongly encourage going without any form of bin liner (including those made from newspaper), we have had many requests for a better bin liner solution than what is currently widely available on the market, and understand there are those who have a need for a more sustainable bin liner.

A note on our packaging: Our commitment to sustainability extends to our packaging which is made from post-consumer recycled material and printed with water based inks so it is suitable for both recycling or composting. We ship low waste and plastic free, reusing boxes and packing materials where we can or FSC certified shipping envelopes that are 100% recyclable.

    Great Bin Liners
    The best thing about these liners, is that you know that they are not breaking down into plastic that will continually pollute the planet and damage further the environment. Now all we need is for all other businesses to organise their packaging so that it doesn’t impact negatively on the environment as well.

  7. Judy E

    Best Bin Liners
    These bin liners are the best. They are sturdy and do not promote odour

    Perfect Fit
    Great little bag for small waste bins – bathroom or similar.

  10. Louise B

    Great for small bins in the bathroom.
    These are great for those little bins you need to use in the bathroom but can be used for other things as well.

  11. Pauline M

    Great Product!
    Compared with other compostable bags I’ve had that broke down too quickly, these are fantastic!

    How I Use ONYA Bin Liners
    I live off grid on Lasqueti Island, British Columbia. My compositing system is simple. It consists of several repurposed plastic coffee containers, with lids, for kitchen scraps and a hole in the ground for composting, covered with a sheet of plywood and a piece of wire fencing. I’ve tried lining the containers with repurposed paper grocery bags, but they are too big and in the end always leak and break. So when I saw ONYA sold compostable bin liners and made them in small sizes, I thought they’d be better than the paper bags. The small size, I’ve found, is perfect for the 800 gm. containers, the liners can hold coffee grounds and veggie peals without leaking or breaking, and, made from plant based materials, they can go directly into the composting pit. Now, washing out the kitchen containers is a little easier too.

  13. Kathy S

    The small compostable bags are true to size. I run a wildlife shelter and generally use at least one bag a day. I hate using plastic as it is so harmful to the environment. These are perfect for me. Thank you.
