Polykar is proud to announce its latest partnership innovation and product – mint scented, rodent repellent garbage bags; produced exclusively by Polykar under the Mint-X brand.
Mint-X garbage bags contain a patented, all-natural, mint-scented fragrance and are proven to reduce the number of garbage bags torn by raccoons, Norway rats and other rodents, while remaining safe for human and their pets.  
The Mint-X bags have proven to be a highly effective solution to infestation problems facing building owners, housing authorities, food service providers, and municipalities. It is the only product of its type approved by Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Authority (PMRA) to reduce the number of bags torn by rats and raccoons.
“This is one of the most exciting innovations our industry has seen in decades, and it responds to a definite need” said Amir Karim, Polykar’s Vice President of Business Development. Jeff Dussich, Chief Operating Officer at New York-based Mint-X Corporation, commented, “We are excited to select Polykar as the sole institutional manufacturer of Mint-X bags in Canada; we saw their commitment to innovation and are proud to be bringing our Mint-X technology to them.”
