I buy these bags for recycle because I've been using my own washable grocery bags for the market for years, now. I like that I can just throw the whole thing into the recycle bin without worrying about it.

Perfect for putting newspapers in the recycle bin.

exactly what I was looking for !

they are strong, clean and just perfect for my paper recycles !

why does it say the product dimensions as 13 x 12.1 x 5.1 inches for a bag 12x7x17 in the caption

No idea on the description. I've ordered these bags twice. Dimensions are 12 x 7 x 17. They fit in my recycle bin perfectly.

Why are the product dimensions different in tne product information and the main description? are they 12x7x17 or are they 13x12.1x5.1? and does that

When the paper bag is open, the dimensions are: 12" x 7" x 15 1/2 ", but if you include the paper handled, the bag is 17 1/2" high. The paper is fairly sturdy, I use them for collection of newspapers, mag's, etc for recycling and they work perfect. The handle makes them easy to pickup and place in the recycle container. I think they are a good purchase.

These are perfect for recycling.

Are these as big as regular grocery bags or are they more like lunch bag size? Thanks

These are the same size as regular grocery bags but sturdier and better made. They have sturdy handles, and the bags hold heavier items and items that have corners (like those packaged in cardboard containers that are fairly heavy) without easily ripping. I have also found no problem with any of them falling apart because the glue used in manufacturing did not hold or was not applied properly as often is the case in some paper bags at the grocery store. I reuse them at home, including for shredded paper required to be in paper bags for recycling. Many of the grocery stores in this area no longer have paper bags, just plastic.

Trash cans come in many different shapes and sizes. The size, shape, and function of your trash can will differ depending on what you need it for. The 13-gallon trash can is usually the standard size for a trash can in most homes, kitchens, and offices. Yours may be an open trash can, a trash can with a lid, or an automatic trash can. Whatever type it is, you’ll need garbage bags that fit. Consider these 13-gallon trash bags to help keep your space clean.
Having trash bags that are easy to use, tough, durable, and hygienic is so important, but we can often be tempted to go for the cheapest option. This is a mistake, because the higher quality materials serve such an important purpose, from protecting the bin itself from dirt to ensuring that it doesn’t split open when being removed and taken away. You never know the true cost of the cheapest bin bag until it spills out all over you, so we think that it is best to invest early on, and to make sure that you know that it is going to hold up when it really matters! Here are some of the best trash bags on the market right now.
Trash bags are one of those household items most people don’t pay much attention to until they don’t work well.  No one wants to clean up the leaky, stinky mess from a trash bag that’s split or torn. Buying the right trash bags means keeping waste contained while minimizing bad odors until it’s time to take the garbage out. In addition to durability, today’s trash bags may include features that fight odor and resist punctures. These trash bags stand out for their quality and effectiveness.
A small trash can is a useful and convenient thing to have in bedrooms and shared spaces to get rid of smaller items easily. Due to the small design, many may overlook the fact that these trash cans still need liners. The same rules of lining larger trash cans apply to these small, 4-gallon trash cans: You do not want to have to clean them out every time you toss them out, and having residue stick in there can cause a gross, sticky, and stinky buildup that gets harder to get rid of. We compiled the best 4-gallon trash bags for you to use to keep your trash can clean and fresh.
