Trash bags should be 4 mils thick, 30" or 32" wide. There are two types of bags that can be used: single bags or tube type. Single bags are suitable for smaller buildings with less than 20 apartments. Using single bags on bigger building would require more frequent bsg changes. The tube bage is one long tube on a roll. Ten to fifteen foot sections can be cut and loaded onto the front of the compactor. The compactor will push off only as much bag as it needs to containthe processed trash. The length of the bag should be kept within sanitation regulations. The only way to regulate the weight of the bag is by its length. The longer the bag, the heavier it will be.
