Finding Creative Ways to Meet Your Needs
While Saving You Money and Resources
Understanding everything there is to know about designing and manufacturing high performance bags is our core business. We can analyze your current bag use and recommend ways to help improve quality, reduce costs, save resources, and protect the environment. In our process to help identify the optimal bag for your needs we:
Review Current Purchases

WasteZero’s bag production process includes over 100 design inputs. These account for the bag’s purpose, how it is designed, sized, made, shipped, and marketed. When we manufacture a bag for a customer, we are committed to delivering the right bag for the right use packaged in the right way for each customer’s specific needs.
We make bags for a range of specialized uses, with features you can’t always find with other manufacturers.
We manufacture bags in a range of standard colors and can also produce specific non-standard colors when needed. Additionally, we offer clear, translucent, and reversible bags, as well as bags with opaque liners.
Our printing technology enables us to put your custom artwork on any bag — ideal for branding and sponsorships or providing information, instructions, or warnings. We can center your artwork on the bag (registered print), or print it all over the bag. Multiple ink choices are available. At present, we only print one ink color per bag but in late 2018, we will have the ability to offer multi-color options as well.
We manufacture bags with a range of closure types, but customers often find drawstring closures to be the most effective. In fact, 70% of all bags sold in the retail market have drawstring closures because they:
- Are more efficient and convenient—no need to use a separate twist-tie
- Reduce the risk of the user coming into contact with waste
- Are stronger, since they have a solid bottom (no seam)
- Use less plastic to achieve the same gallon capacity as other common bag types (up to 25% of other bag capacity is used to tie bags closed)
Based on a customer’s needs, we can make bags from 100% recycled material, 100% new plastic content, or any combination in between. Our 3-ply extrusion technology and formulation expertise enable us to incorporate recycled content while maintaining or enhancing bag strength. Our manufacturing expertise:
- Reduces costs
- Saves plastic
- Protects the environment
- Helps you meet your sustainability objectives
Whether we are designing a new closure technology or formulating a specific content mix, WasteZero appreciates the unique requirements of every customer, and we’re always innovating to meet new needs.
One example is our reversible technology for roadside clean-up programs, which eliminates the need for state Departments of Transportation (DOT) to maintain two different bag inventories (orange for trash, blue for recycling). WasteZero pioneered technology to produce bags with one color on the outside and another color on the inside. This is extremely helpful for DOT customers, who can use one side for trash or turn it inside out and use the other for recycling.
