Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gravedigger UPDATE! -- These Actually Work Well!!
We used three of these bags to dispose of portions of dried elm tree branches. The three branches were each over twenty feet long to start. When the dried branches were cut or broken into short lengths, they were so sharp that they would cut through most extra large heavy duty black plastic clean-up bags. The three demo bags that we used this time did get two small (approx. 1/2 inch diameter) holes. The demo bags did NOT rip! The attached photos show where one bag was punctured when it was thrown and landed on a sharp object. The other was scraped on the inside of the bag and did poke through.
The holes were not easy to find after the bags had been emptied. It took only a few minutes to "bandage" the wounds using heavy duty "Gorilla" duct tape applied to both the inside and outside of the bag. The bags are ready for immediate use again. The "wounds" show the effective construction that not only resists tearing, but limits the damage if punctured!
The fact that these bags can be easily repaired, if necessary, and then used again makes the not only extremely cost effective, but far less likely to rip apart dumping material!

We have had nothing but problems with large "heavy duty" plastic bags used when disposing of yard waste. It seems that everything wants to poke through the sides and tear them apart. We deliberately made a holder 18" square at the top and 42" deep that holds the unopened 36" x 60" bags open such that two people can work, rather than having one person hold the bag open while only one person works!
Even with the support of this holder to "protect" those "heavy duty" bags, they would get immediately torn when removed from the holder.
These 42 gal. white contractor trash bags do NOT get torn! They can be emptied, folded, and then used again. I would prefer an unopened size that is the 36" x 60." However, that would probably let us put in more weight than should be handled. (We are in our 70's).
The photo shows one bag inside the holder held with binder clips, and a second bag outside to show the length of the bag relative to the holder's size.

These bags will NOT rip like they say.
I had a mess of roofing shingles I had to bring to the dump. I picked up these bags and stuffed them with the debris. None of the bags ripped. You can fill these bags with so much heavy material that you will have a tough time picking up the bag, but it won't rip or break.
Definitely would recommend

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dznj Sturdy, does what it says.....
Very sturdy. Can handle wood with nails and heavy materials with ease. Plus it can be re-used many times. Wish it had some kind of closure at the top for when you are going to dispose of the bag when it is full of stuff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ErnieBanks best garbage bags by far
After I finish a project, I have lots of scrap with sharp corners. If I put that stuff in any other garbage bag, it rips, the bag spills, and I have to do it again. Rounding off all the corners and pulling out all the nails is a royal pain. These bags do not rip. I fill them up and put them on the curb for a special pickup from the garbage service. I can put 60 lbs in them. They are expensive, but nothing else comes close. The do not come with ties, though - I closed the tops with a couple of loops of duct tape.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NoGoofOff Just bag it!
I have been using these bags for several years and without a doubt they are the BEST and cheapest bags ever! The black heavy duty bags get holes poked in them and can't carry nearly the load theses bags can. Even used them for left over building materials, ever put a 2x4 in a plastic bag? The bags are reusable (to be most cost effective) and are strong you can load them up with more "stuff " than you want to carry. I have even loaded them with about 25-30 pounds of mud set ceramic tile and tossed them out a 2nd floor window... talk about labor and time saving! OK maybe one or two might have had a hole poked in them but saved me hours of labor and saved my back from dragging them down the hall, down the steps more hall then out the kitchen. I only wish that I could find them locally as they are a must have on my list.
