News and Testimonials

Dear Clients,
Polykar wishes to inform all our valued clients that over the coming weeks we will be transitioning all of our certified compostable bags to coreless bags on a roll, with a star seal bottom.

Our research and testing has proven that star seal bottom bags will offer better strength and ensure the bags are more leak proof for the collection of organic waste.  In addition, the roll format will result in bags which are easier to handle in both domestic and ICI (industrial, commercial and industrial) settings. It is our belief that this will lead to greater customer convenience and satisfaction.
All product codes, case packs and prices remain the same. Polykar’s compostable bags continue to be certified by BPI, BNQ and ECOLOGO. The price list detailing the new specifications is available on our website at:
