Bin Liners Direct pride ourselves on meeting the European standards and regulations. The certificates below are proof that our entire range of biodegradable bin liners have been rigorously tested for the time process in which they degrade and meet the expectations of the compounds specified in their materials. Each certificate below explains which test the bin liners have been through and which standards they meet. Many of the certificates are printed on the bin bags to prove they are free of materials that are a biohazard or could be a danger to health. Not only do our bin liner certificates show the materials meet necessary compounds but they also show that they have criteria to assure the strength, most of our bin bags have a gauge measurement which is measured by the thickness of the bin bag and all of our strength measurements have been tested and meet European standards.
