Now by doing this, BagEZ eliminates two problems for you. Firstly finding cost-effective bags to fit your bins that comply with regulations and restriction sizes, but also reduce the lifting and movement of garbage bags from one (1) bin to another, that is a struggle and painful for some to perform and or lead to bag rips and leaks requiring additional cleaning.
We always recommend using the right type of bags, as per your local regulations and laws to ensure you’re doing your bit for the environment.

How does Bagez help me avoid unpleasant odours?
By using BagEZ you can discard food waste or organic matter that may cause unpleasant odors such as seafood, directly into the bag attached to your unit inside the wheelie bin outdoors. Some people usually have an extra storage bin in the garage for convenience which is frequently emptied out by lifting the bag and dragging it to the wheelie bin before rolling the bin to the curb for disposal. BagEZ eliminates the need for this secondary bin in the garage as it performs the same function of storing and holding a garbage bag only more efficiently and not within the home area. Odors build inside sealed homes and garages, the Bagez solution thereby helps you avoid smelly garbage from creating a stench in the home. BagEZ also eliminates food matter from sticking to the walls of your bin, which cause foul odors when they begin to decompose, freeing your from having to perform frequent bin washing.
Can Bagez be used in any other bins?
Bagez is extremely versatile and although it is primarily designed to secure waste in outdoor wheelie bins, Bagez can also be used in a large variety of bins such as the circular/ square indoor / outdoor with lid bins,where the edge is defined and narrow to allow an easy rest for the unit. This allows you to once again choose the trash bags (8-gallons and up) that you want to use to be firmly secured in your bin in the upright position, rather than be forced to use the larger bags that must go over the edge of the bin to prevent bag slippage and prevent your waste from messing up your bin.
How do I store Bagez when it’s not in use?
Bagez, is extremely sturdy and designed for daily use and with a simple twist, Bagez can be folded and tucked away occupying a minimal amount of space (almost the size of a clothes hanger), allowing it to be conveniently carried along anywhere – for picnics, on fishing trips or any other outdoor activities like Barbecues and more.
How does Bagez help me save money?
⦁ We’ve designed Bagez to help you conserve space and reduce your stress when it comes to waste management, all while helping you protect the environment. But we’ve also created this product to help you save money in various ways: –
⦁ Bagez reduces the number of bin liners/ plastic bags you would normally use and the money you spend on them. Here’s how:-
On average a regular household (3-4 persons) uses 4 single-use plastic/ grocery bags a week to dispose of organic waste.
⦁ @$0.05 a bag x 4 bags a week x 52 weeks = $10.40 per year
But 1 single 8-9 gallon bag (34 liters) can easily support the organic waste of this household. With Bagez, that supports kitchen liners of up to 8-9 gallons for the organic bin (green), usage reduces to Just 52 bags a year (1 per week).
⦁ @$0.07 x 52 weeks = $3.64 per year
So, not only does Bagez save you $6.76 a year it also helps you save the environment.
Studies also show on average bags used to line indoor / circular bins are sealed and disposed of when they reach about 80% capacity, this results in approx 9 gallons, which is equal to a whole cabinet kitchen liner bag being disposed of every time a bag is disposed, this equals to $14 + per year of money literally throw away besides the impact to the environment, a problem Bagez easily solves, resulting in a more efficient and cost effective use of bags, besides the reduced plastic environmental advantage.
⦁ Bagez is versatile enough to use with all size garbage bags so you don’t need to purchase larger, more expensive bags for larger bins. To illustrate:-
One of the primary reasons people choose to spend more on garbage bags is because they’re less likely to tear/rip while lifting them, due to the weight of organic waste and size of the bags. It also prevents them from utilizing the bags to their full capacity because of the same reasons, causing the use of multiple bags.
⦁ These large, expensive 47 gallon bags (178 L) cost $9.97 (pack of 20).
$0.49 (per bag) x 2 bags per week (average) x 26 weeks (Bi-weekly pick up) = $25.48 per year
Now, consider opting for slightly cheaper quality bags or smaller bags as in the examples below, calculated for an average household of 3-4 persons.
⦁ Sample A 47 gallon (178 L) 40 pack @ $9.97
$0.24 (per bag) x 2 bags per week (average) x 26 weeks (Bi-weekly pick up) = $12.48 per year
⦁ Sample B 20 gallon (75 L) 100 pack @ $9.97
$0.09 (per bag) x 5 (average) x 26 weeks (Bi-weekly pick up) = $11.7 per year
Bagez not only supports multiple bag sizes, it also eliminates the worry from bag splits/ rips as it doesn’t require you to lift the bags outside of the bin. This enables you to save money by choosing the large, inexpensive bags (Sample A) or smaller bags (Sample B)
Aside from this, Bagez also allows you to use each bag to its maximum capacity, effectively giving you more gallon space. Using the above examples, you could end up with 6 gallons extra (Sample B) and spend only $11.7 a year which is a $13.78 savings or save $13 (Sample A) on the larger, more affordable option without worry.
⦁ It saves you cleaning costs by companies that would normally charge anywhere between $100-$400, depending on the number of bins you have or how often you have them cleaned. You can also discard your trash from other indoor bins directly into Bagez thereby saving on the number of bags purchased for smaller in-home cans and bins.
⦁ Bagez also helps you save money on exterminator fees to rid yourself of vermin, pests and animals that are attracted to food waste caused by leakages in your bin, bag splits and spills. These critters not only cause disease but also, sometimes, thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to your home.
What size garbage bin does Bagez fit?
While Bagez is designed to be versatile and used with almost all size trash bags, it can also be used with almost all outdoor residential trash cans as well. Now you don’t have to waste time worrying if the bag is the right size for your bin or vice versa. Bagez is the garbage bag holder that works with all wheelie bins and cart sizes. Few cart sizes commonly used – 26,32, 65, and 95 gallons. (80, 120, 240 and 360 Liters)
Bagez sets up in seconds; all you have to do is place it in position, secure the bag to the frame using the supplied fasteners and start using it. It can also be quickly and easily folded away and carried along for use anywhere else.
Besides having the convenience of simply being placed into position, there are no modifications required to set it up. When its garbage collection day, just remove Bagez by lifting the fasteners, sealing your last bag, and pushing the bin to the curb to wait for pickup. That’s it.

How does Bagez help keep pests at bay?
⦁ Bagez is designed to be a holistic method for home waste management by helping you keep and improve sanitary conditions in your home.
You may use an extra garbage can inside your garage for easy access to dispose of your household waste. Disposal of any organic waste in your garbage can causes odors. This can even be food particles stuck to its packing. Pests looking for a food source are attracted to this smell. Pests such as mice and rodents also seek shelter. Once these critters and pests get into your home and mark it as a source of food and shelter, count on their numbers increasing.
This situation can soon become highly problematic, especially if there are young children around as these creatures frequently carry and cause dangerous diseases. When pests get into your home, they can quickly and easily become a real nuisance. Bad odors and flies inside your home can become a regular issue once they get inside the walls, and it can lead to thousands of dollars in repair costs and even lower the value of your home.
A well-known fact most exterminators, websites and waste management experts will tell you is never to keep organic waste in your garage. Remove any food source that will incentivize pests to enter your home.
People use additional cans because finding cost-effective bags to line your large wheelie bins is impossible.
You may say it’s convenient to have the bin close by, but then you have stinky nasty bins caused by smelly food waste such as seafood shells that create flies in the garage. To avoid having the smell build up in your garage can, you may dispose of stinky waste directly in your city wheelie bin. Single-use plastic bags frequently used to contain this smelly waste often leaks and over time deposits build up and emit odors. These odors are like candy to pests such as mice, raccoon’s and bears and can attract them from miles, and they do leave behind a nasty mess for you to clean up after they are finished.
Bin enclosures are great for giving the bigger critters a hard time to get to your bin, leaving you with only the dirty, smelly bin problem.
To avoid the stench and maggots, especially in summer you may frequently wash your container.
Bagez firmly secures your bags directly in your wheelie bins and a few regular bins, which are supposed to be positioned outside the home.
Lining your bins removes various problems for you; the odor or food source for pest and rodents flies buzzing over the bin and garage, hiding spots for these critters and any chance of bag rips or liquids leaking when pulling out the bags from your additional trash can that can cause a smell. You get to free up your garage by removing the bin leaving you more room to maneuver without brushing on to cars.
Bagez is designed to make regular sized bags fit your larger bins. Now your bins can be lined so no waste matter touches your containers walls. Now when your waste is collected everything you put in, all natural process that occurs, happens right in the bag and the bag gets taken away, leaving you with a clean fresh bin to start with every time. Free from any odors emitting matter, that attracts pest and rodents
Washing bins to avoid smells and nastiness from building up, not only deposit rotting waste that attracts pests too, it generates dirty water that can run off on the lawn or back into the system that may cause additional pollution or health issues and is illegal in some areas.
How does Bagez improve hygiene in the home?
⦁ By using Bagez, you continue to get the convenience of having your garbage bag to use for trash as required, except, it’s outside your home and directly inside your wheelie or garbage bin. By having all your garbage outside your home, you avoid bad smells, bugs, pests, vermin and other animals attracted by the scent of your waste, marking your home as a source of food and shelter. They can be a source of infection and quickly cause a build-up of unhygienic conditions all from having waste kept in a bin in the garage. Flies buzzing over the bin in your garage often get into the house when the door is opened.
Bagez secures your garbage bag so that when depositing trash daily there is no contact between you bin wall and the garbage. This helps keep all sort of household waste matter off your bin, keeping it clean and not causing any unhygienic conditions and smells that may attract these pests.
Since it is outdoors, the wind also takes away any odors.
Because of this, pests and bugs that spread disease (which account for 1 of the top 6 reasons for infections around homes in North America and Canada) can be drastically reduced.
