Can I use GreenSax liners in the new food waste bin?
Yes. GreenSax liners are 100% compostable bin liners and are specially designed for use in the food waste bins under the new commercial food waste regulations brought into force on 1st July 2010. GreenSax liners have been accredited with the OK COMPOST MARK which certifies them to be fully compostable in accordance with the EU Composting Standard EN13432.
Are GreenSax certified "compostable" and compliant with EU Composting Standard EN13432?
Yes. All GreenSax liners have been accredited with the OK COMPOST MARK which certifies them to be fully compostable in accordance with the EU Composting Standard EN13432.
Why can’t I use “biodegradable” liners in my food waste bins?
“Biodegradable” bin liners are made using petrochemical plastics, such as Polyethylene (PE), which do not break down at the composting facility and contaminate the process. Biodegradable liners contain +90% petrochemical plastic (PE) with an additive that causes them to fall apart into smaller pieces of plastic over a long period of time, when exposed to sunlight and the atmosphere. However, these smaller pieces of plastic, although usually not easily visible to the eye, remain in the environment for many years.
How long can I store GreenSax liners for before using them?
GreenSax liners will store indefinitely until used, if they are kept in a dry place.
