# What are garbage bags made out of?

Plastic bags are generally made either of HDPE or LDPE, which respectively stand for Low Density Polypropylene and High Density Polypropylene.\n.
\nLow density of LDPE is due to the presence of side chains in the polymer's chains, phenomenon called branching.\nThe extra branching give special prope…rties such as a lower Young's modulus (lower strength of the material) but higher resistance to strain (tougher material).\n.
\nLDPE will deform more than HDPE before reaching the yield point, neck formation and subsequent breakage of the material.\nHDPE will support a heavier load but will break more suddenly than LDPE, going through more limited deformation. (MORE)

As it would seem that the size of the bag will determine how many cans are within (crushed or other wise) and because each crushed can still retains a different shape (some crush more than others), there is no way to provide an exact answer about the weight of the bag.

# Do all garbage bags pop when compacted in a garbage truck?

Depends on several factors - if it is tied or not those that aren't tied usually don't "pop" due to the lack of pressure built inside the bag however the bags that are tied tightly will most generally "pop" at some point while in the truck if they are not "popped" from the pack cycle. A bag which… is not tied at the top however, may still pop depending on how/where it lands in the hopper when the garbagemen throw it in - this too can determine if there will be any trapped air in it (and it will therefore "pop") when the packer draws the load into the body. Nearly all bags will pop if they are in the pinch point of the packer blade, especially if there are other bags behind them. Another determining factor is the type of packing mechanism, those that mutilate the waste rather than flatly compress it with moving walls or plates - examples such as screw compactors, revolving drum compactors and the like will usually tear and rip the bags open before any air can build up inside.
