Asda Smartprice Refuse Sacks
Advantages: Very cheap, large
Disadvantages: Very thin, No tie handles, Can't hold heavy waste and break easily with weight
I like to think that I am relatively careful with what a buy, and how much I spend on the things that life makes you waste money on - I count bin liners as one of these. Although necessary for me, as something which is going straight in the bin when it's full I really don't want to spend a small fortune on them.
These bin liners are available at £1.09 for 45 bags in Asda. This works out a very reasonable 2.4p per bag. The bags come in a roll with a paper wrap around them containing the usually product title and description. The bags have a perforated line between then so that you can pull them apart easily and without damaging the bottom of the next bag.
These bin liners fit in my 50L with a good amount to fold over the edge of the bin. They cold possibly be used for a slightly larger bin, but due to how thin they are I wouldn't recommend them. I have quite a lot of light household rubbish such as non-recycable packaging, the contents of my hoover and the usual things that end up in the bin. I found that this bag can hold bulky and light packaging excellently, but as soon as you put anything of significant weight in it then it just goes straight through the bottom.
I have 2 cats who use a littertray and have occassionally put a small amount of litter in with our kitchen waste as I took it out to the bin and the bags are definitely not strong enough to hold even small amounts of heavy waste. I had quite a few bags from my roll break just with kitchen waste, which meant that I had to start doule-bagging my bin and emptying it before the bags were full to save it going all over the floor.
The bags do not have handle ties, but it's very easy to use the spare bag at the top to tie a knot. I do think that these bags are good value, but I find that teh Tesco equivalent are stronger from my own personal experiences. Personally, I won't be buying these bags again unless I have a lot of very light rubbish but they would be great for people who just want a cheap refuge sack for light/very light household waste and rubbish.
Summary: A cheap and cheeful option for lightweight rubbish
