Plastic bags for rubbish or litter are sold in a number of sizes at many stores in packets or rolls of a few tens of bags. Wire twist ties are sometimes supplied for closing the bag once full. Varying thicknesses are commonly manufactured – thicker bags are used for heavy-duty applications such as construction waste, or in order to be able to withstand being compacted during recycling processes. In the mid-1990s bin bags with drawstrings for closure were introduced. Some bags have handles which may be tied or holes through which the neck of the bag can be pulled. Most commonly, the plastic used to make bin bags is the rather soft and flexible LDPE (low-density polyethylene) or, for strength, LLDPE (linear low-density polyethylene)


The Gusset Seal design is a composite idea of the other designs. It’s a flat style bag made with both sides tucked in to form gussets.  Where the bag is indented, it has to be sealed through four layers of film, while the middle of the bag has only two layers.  This type of construction means that there is a weakness where leaks can occur. Nevertheless, they are still extremely popular because of the ease of manufacture and good fit inside the garbage bin receptacle.
