Waste Bags for Compost Bin (25)

What makes it Mighty?

  • Fits any standard sized countertop compost collector
  • Made of compostable plant plastic
  • Certified by the biodegradable products institute

Collect food scraps and organic waste in your compost collector with these handy bags. They're strong enough not to tear but will break down in a proper composting environment. These bags keep your compost pail clean and frees up time for doing better things - like tending to your new organic garden!

Fresh Air bags can "breathe", allowing heat and moisture to escape, reducing bacteria buildup and odor from your compost collector.


Use and care:

Compostable bags are designed to degrade like the food they hold. While the bags are built tough, the degradation process begins when they come into contact with organic materials such as food waste, and continue to break down with time. When disposing of a full bag, be sure to support the base to ensure the bag does not rip. Bag degradation will vary in relation to room temperature. During normal usage, you should replace your bags every 3-5 days.

Bags are certified to meet ASTM D6400 standards. This means they will break down in an industrial composting facility. Please dispose of the bags properly. They may take more time to degrade in a home composting environment.

Saved my kitchen!

These are terrific. I have a ceramic compost bucket I keep on the counter, but emptying the thing was a chore. These fit perfectly and make it easy to dispose of kitchen waste. They are rated for industrial composting facilities, but I find they break down quickly and I am happy using them to haul waste to my garden bin.

Almost perfect

Almost perfect

Want to love these so much, especially for the price, but they tear so easily when separating from the roll! One false move and the bag is ruined before you even use it. Otherwise it is sturdy once in the pail and doesn’t leak when transferring to my composter.

About Full Circle

It’s a simple reality: our product choices are limited to what we can find on store shelves. And more often than not, products that are the most accessible aren’t always the most eco-friendly. Or good looking. That’s just the way it’s been for ages.  But the game has changed—with Full Circle’s line of stylish, functional products made from sustainable and renewable resources. Like scrub brushes with sleek, bamboo handles and sponges made from cellulose, a plant-based fiber. They’ve even made pot scrubbers that fully biodegrade!  Important behind-the-scenes changes are happening at Full Circle, too—such as improved working conditions, cleaner manufacturing methods and higher environmental standards. Even their suppliers have come around to their way of thinking. (They’re kind of persuasive that way.)At Full Circle, we believe in constantly striving to do things better. Because while there may be a finite number of resources in the world, there’s an infinite number of ways to use them more wisely. And figuring out how to do that is what gets us up every morning.
