To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I purchased these bucket liners for use in one of the standard big box store's 5 gallon pail and lid combos. We use the bucket to store our large dog's, um...droppings, between garbage pickup days. The bags come at a nice price, with convenient dispensing, are very strong, fit snugly around the top of the bucket, and seal nicely for deposit in the garbage bin for pickup day (no smell!). I definitely recommend the liners based on our experience. I will buy more.
I have purchased other trash and storage bags from this company and written reviews on those purchases. But this is the first time I have bought the smaller size which is the 5 gallon drawstring bag which I use in the bathroom trashcan. I chose these bags because they are 1.0 mm thick. They replaced the .7mm bags I previously used which were a bit flimsy. These are so nice and the drawstring is a great feature. I have read of people complaining on these and other bags that they are not strong enough and rip. Whether you buy a 5 gallon 8 gallon or 13 gallon etc. these household trash bags were never designed to be filled with 25 pounds of glass and bricks… If you use them as designed and don’t make them too heavy or put sharp bones or broken glass in them many bags will do just fine. If they are too heavy or overfilled because you want to avoid using another new bag then you will probably not have great luck. But in closing I will say that the many different bags I have used from Plastic Place are excellent and quite sturdy. I have bought their black 4 mm thick 55 gallon lawn bags and also their 42 gallon white contractor trash bags that are also 4 mm thick. I use the white bags for storing blankets and toys and other items and seal them with Resealable plastic ties. Their products are second to none and mostly made in the USA. Just all-around great company!
These bags fit perfectly over a normally 5 gallon bucket from a big box store. They are quite sturdy as I normally throw small wood scraps into the bucket and the bags do not rip when pulling out of the bucket. O do use a large rubber band to help keep the bags from falling into the bucket, but only because I am throwing wood scraps into it. Without the rubber band it holds onto the edges quite well.
I replaced a tall kitchen garbage can with a smaller 5 gal size. 5 gallon can is small for kitchen garbage and I had trouble finding liners that were heavy enough. The usual liners were not heavy enough for the wet, smelly kitchen garbage. These do it and the smaller can is much less intrusive in the kitchen.
Great bags, strong enough to hold heavier loads wo tearing and a great price as 5gal bags aren’t as easy to find in the store. The only thing I’d change is for the box to have a perforated opening to make the bags easier to remove rather than having to completely open the top.
Just the right size for 5 gallon buckets! I don’t know why, but neither grocery nor hardware stores seem to carry these (and I’ve looked for years). Either way too big or too small. Perfect for dorm, bathroom, garage, etc..
