    Any idea where to find a good deal on trash bags? I buy mine at Home Depot. They are 3 mil and 42 gallons. I believe 30 come to a box and they cost about $10. I have tried bags that are 1 and 2 mil and they do not work for us. I go to Home Depot once a month to buy trash bags. I know it would be cheaper to find a good price and buy a year's supply upfront.

    Go to your local Janitorial Supply house. They have 33, 44, 55, 60 gallon sizes in many different thickness'. # mil will be the thickest you'll get. What are you putting in them? If grass, I'd look to high Density say 22-24 microns. they are stronger than your 3 mil but don't hold up with sharp objects.
    good luck

    Believe it or not I found a great place in the Yelow Pages of my local phone book. I change the trash bags , in the public trash cans,every week at a shopping center that I maintain.

    I don't know if this is a nationalk chain or I just have it by me but, there is a place called PLASTIC BAG MART and it has really good deals on every bag from trash bags to door hangers.

    I get mine at Sam's. 90 - 42 gallon bags for under $10.00. Hold up great for leaves and grass.
     
  7. I get mine from an industrial supply place , i do the garbage at one of my ball diamonds they are really strong and they fit 55 gallon drums really easy.
