Where can I buy trash bags that fit the big green plastic cans. I have tried different brands and cant seem to find one with a wide enough mouth to fit around the can. Does anyone know?

I buy bags from a janitorial supply store. They have different sizes, I would bring your can down there and buy bags that can actually fit over the outside of the can. Over size them then you can stuff a can full of sticks and anything else, put the bag over the can and tip it upside down with out the sticks snagging and ripping the bag.
Very fast way to bag spring clean up crap. I pay about $20 for a box of 200 heavy duty.

we have the green barrels but the sup[ply of bags we used to order got canceled, not available now. we cant find any wide enough to fit so we had to stop using our green barrels. very sad, our janitorial supply store could not match the size. anyone find them to fit let me know where you got em!

I found some that fit the large green barrels....they are at landscaperpro.com....Only thing is they are really expensive! You get 100 bags for $56.50!!!!! That seems really high to me.

The lawn and leaf bags from ACE Hardware will fit but they are very thin and you cant pull them out with grass in them without ripping
