Biodegradable Leaf Bags

Many communities have banned the use of regular plastic bags for yard waste removal, because polyethylene-based plastic bags can not be composted with the yard waste or burned. The best solution is to allow wet grass clippings be left on the lawn, where the clippings will quickly biodegrade and add nutrient value to your lawn. Another alternative has been to use paper bags for collection. But paper bags have storage issues, they are small and do not hold up well in wet weather. That's why these BioBag Lawn & Leaf are useful — they are bioplastic bags made out of non-genetically modified starch. BioBag Lawn & Leaf bags can be set at curbside for up to 12 days before the collected waste will begin to break the bag down.
