42 Gallon Contractor Bags

3.0 Mil, 33"W x 48"H, Black, 50 / Case

item #CON50
Whether you’re clearing up after a demolition or just disposing of serious yard waste, these black contractor bags are a smart choice. They’ve been made in the USA with superior low-density resins to a serious thickness of 3 mil. That means they’ll deal with pretty much anything you can throw at them or throw away in them. Bricks, nails, broken glass: all child’s play to these heavy duty black trash bags. The extra-large 42 gallon capacity means they’re the ideal size for outdoor cans, but the flat seal helps them to stand upright even on their own.

In order to choose the right size bag, please consider the following:

  • On, dimensions refer to the dimensions of the trash bag, not the trash can.
  • The trash bag dimensions need to be larger than your trash can measurements to ensure a proper fit.


 1. Determine the width of the trash bag you will need:

Square/rectangle trash cans:

Round trash cans:

square can

Take the perimeter (sum of all the sides) of your trash can and divide by 2. This will be the width of your trash bag.

Example: Perimeter of can = 32", Width of trash bag = Perimeter (32) divided by two = 16"
round can

Take the diameter (width of your trash can) and multiply by 3.14 (pi). Take this number and divide by 2.

Example: Diameter = 16", Width of trash bag = (16 x 3.14)/2 = 25"

2. Determine the height of the trash bag you will need:

Take the height of your can, and add four inches for overhang plus half the width of the can (or diameter), this ensures there’s enough material to cover the bottom of your can.

Example: Bag height needed: 42 (can height) + 4 (overhang) + 12 (1/2 can width) = 60.
