Difference Between Compostable Bags and Bio Degradable Bags

Compostable Cornstarch Bags

Cornstarch BagsCompostable bags are manufactured from natural plant products such as corn starch and provide nutrition to micro-organisms that live in compost. Microbes use them as food and break them down without disrupting the natural process of compost.  

The green compostable bags Cleanaway provides, totally break down in the compost heap within 6 weeks. Compostable bags should be stored under cool, dry conditions; otherwise they start breaking down prematurely!

You can order more compostable bags and they will be delivered when the driver next empties your green or yellow bin.

Bio-Degradable Bags

Bio Degradable BagsBio-degradable bags are made from plastics which break down slowly through chemical and physical processes. These types of bags often leave small pieces behind. Bio-degradable often really means the plastic merely disintegrates into smaller pieces instead of being totally degraded.

Bio-degradable plastics cause problems in the composting process by preventing aeration needed to get oxygen into the process and disruption to moisture retention. The persistent pieces that remain in the compost product are unsightly and serve no beneficial purpose.
