Use this guide to determine which trash liner you need.

For Square/Rectangle Trash Cans
  1. Determine Bag Width: Take the perimeter (sum of all the sides) of your trash can and divide by two. This will be the width of your trash bag.
    • Example: If perimeter of can = 32",
      width of trash bag = perimeter (32") ÷ 2 = 16".
  2. Determine Bag Length: Add the height of the container, plus 1/2 diameter, plus 4-5 inches for overhang.
    • Example: If height of can = 18", and if 1/2 diameter = 4", height of trash bag = height (18") + 1/2 diameter (4") + 5" = 27".

For Round Trash Cans
  1. Determine Bag Width: Take the diameter (width of your trash can) and multiply by 3.14 (pi). Take this number and divide by two. This will be the width of your trash bag.
    • Example: If diameter of can = 16",
      width of trash bag = 16" x 3.14 = 50", 50" ÷ 2 = 25".
  2. Determine Bag Length: Add the height of the container, plus 1/2 diameter, plus 4-5 inches for overhang.
    • Example: If height of can = 18", and if 1/2 diameter = 8",
      height of trash bag = height (18") + 1/2 diameter (8") + 5" = 31".
