yes they fit perfectly. I use them for recycling items.
The bags are very sturdy. I use them for all my recyclable paper items, and they hold ALOT!! I have also used them for groceries and they are great. I haven't had one tear yet. Hope this helps. 🙂
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.
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 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.
