We have mandatory recycling in our area and are required to use blue bags like the “GLAD Blue Recycling Bags” for our paper and plastic/glass recyclables.
The bags measure approximately 28 x 24 inches. “Glad Blue Recycling Bags” are made with ForceFlex technology which gives them an odd waffle-like texture. Although the bags appear thin and not very durable the ForceFlex technology gives them the strength and stretch-ability to handle tough jobs.
The bags have incredible stretch and are very strong. I can poke my finger through the plastic approximately 3 inches before it tears. I feel better they are better suited to bottles and cans. We have found that cardboard often rips through the bags with their sharp corners.
The bag sports a handy red draw string that allows the bags to be quickly and easily tied closed.
The bags are at a slightly higher price-point per bag than the ones I have traditionally used, but it may appear that “you get what you pay for”. In the case of my usual bags, the seams often let go and I am forced to used a second bag or run the risk of a complete bag failure.
The “GLAD Blue Recycling Bags with ForceFlex” make taking out the recycling trash easy.
