Abstract Sacks for storing solid waste were initially tried in Europe but recently--within about the last 12 years--their use has spread to the United States. Much research has been done on solid waste sacks, both paper and plastic. Many communities have tried paper sacks, plastic sacks, or both in test areas to determine their acceptability as solid waste storage containers and to identify their effect on solid waste collection and disposal. The purpose of this paper is to summarize what research has been done and the reported findings of the many test and community-wide programs on this subject.
