BioBag Lawn & Leaf Bags are a full 33 gallon capacity, measuring 32.5 inches wide and 39 inches tall. Many communities have banned the use of regular plastic bags for yard waste removal, because polyethylene-based plastic bags cannot be composted with the yard waste or burned. Until now the alternative has been paper bags. Studies show paper bags are difficult for consumers to use and store, have a limited fill capacity (usually 28 gallons), and do not hold up well in wet weather. We strongly recommend that wet grass clippings be left on the lawn, where the clippings will quickly biodegrade and add nutrient value to your lawn. Placing wet grass clippings in either a paper bag or a BioBag can stimulate bag decomposition within three or four days.
