When you think about running a business, the first thing you think about probably isn’t how you’re going to dispose of your trash. Understandably so, as things like how you’re going to turn a profit are pretty important, but still, trash is a big deal. Americans produce an average of 4.3 pounds of waste per person per day. That works out to be about 1.37 BILLION pounds of trash each day, nationwide. And since a lot of people’s trash is disposed of away from the home, you better believe your business is going to be responsible for cleaning up some of that mess.
With all of that trash to deal with, it’s obviously pretty important to have a plan about how you’re going to deal with your customer’s and employee’s waste. Whether you’re a restaurant throwing away unfinished food items, or a hospital dealing with medical waste, you’re for sure going to need trashcan liners that can get the job done. The last thing anyone wants is to have to clean up a mound of trash that just spilled from a trashcan liner that tore because it couldn’t handle the weight.
Lucky for you, PJP has a great solution with our new line of Sure Blue Trashcan Liners.
1) Hexene Strong
SureBlue liners are made from a Polyethylene variant called Super Hexene, which combines the best features of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE). The resin used to make these liners is from a new generation of resins using a proprietary formula which results in an extremely high performance plastic film. Gauge-for-gauge, Super Hexen can be up to 50% stronger than any comparable Low Density Polyethylene bag. Super Hexene is also incredibly puncture and tear resistant, making it a perfect solution for a wide variety of waste disposal needs. Simply put, if you’re not 100% sure what kind of trashcan liner you need, your safest bet is with SureBlue.
2) Right Fit
Other than strength, the most important thing to consider when choosing a trashcan liner is whether or not it fits your trashcan (obviously). This sounds like a simple endeavor, but it can actually be an annoying and frustrating process that typically results in your trashcan liner being too big for the can it goes into. The main problem is that trashcan liners are usually sold based on their length and width measurements (e.g. 38” x 58”) whereas trashcans are sold based on their capacity (e.g. 55 gallon). So for you, as a consumer, it is difficult to know what liner you should buy. SureBlue liners use a “right fit” system and are specifically designed to fit the various sizes of commercial trashcans (55 gallon, 44 gallon, 32 gallon, and 23 gallon). Not only does this save you the hassle of all of that guesswork, it saves you money by helping you avoid over-spending on liners that are too big for your trashcans.
3) Environmentally Friendly
The additional benefit of the two points we listed above is that they makes SureBlue liners more environmentally friendly. The Super Hexene material is actually not only stronger, but also thinner than more common forms of polyethylene. Combine that with the fact that the strength of the bag prevents the need for wasteful double-bagging and the “Right Fit” system cuts down on excess plastic, and SureBlue can actually end up using as much as 35% less plastic than your average liner. This results in less plastic ending up in landfills, which is better for the environment, and better for your bottom line.
