Each year, tons of leaves, grass clippings, and small branches are needlessly tossed into landfills. The recycling of your yard trimmings is easy to do and good for our environment. Compostable bags allow for more efficient collection, and they break down quickly, leaving no harmful residue behind. Remember to only place yard trimmings in City of Houston-approved compostable bags and place at the curb on your scheduled collection day. Only organic material (i.e., leaves, grass clippings, and small branches) should be placed in the compostable bag, and do not use metal, plastic, or foreign ties to seal the bag. Please keep in mind that the compostable bags begin to break down as soon as material is placed into them, so be sure to get them to the curb within a week.

This certification assures that BioBag products meet the specifications found in ASTM D6400 and will compost rapidly and safely when placed in a municipal or commercial composting facility. BioBags are compostable, which means our bags will decompose naturally when exposed to micro-organisms that live in the earth's soil. Per the ASTM D6400 standard, BioBag products can be composted when placed in a municipal or commercial composting facility leaving behind no harmful residue. Environmental Tip: Using a mulching mower will create grass clippings that will biodegrade quickly and nutrient value to your soil. Master-Bi is an innovative family of bioplastics derived from the starches of plants, vegetable oils and compostable polymers. Manufactured in the USA with resin sourced from Italy.
