Our editorial team selected the products on this list based on actual customer reviews. For each category, we carefully selected parameters based on our research and identified the garbage bags with the highest review score within those parameters.
Our pick for the best budget option is the Multix Large 34L Colour Scents Handy Ties Tidy Bags. From hundreds of reviews, including over 600 on Catch, these bags have an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars.
The bags come in a variety of scents, including lavender, apple, lemon, vanilla, rose and lime. As the name suggests, they have handles that are easy to tie and easy to carry. Customer reviews say they are strong, reliable and great value for money.
The large option will fit most garbage bins and comes in packs of 12, 30 or 60. Prices vary, but you can generally get 60 bags for between $6 and $10.
For the best mid-range bag, we chose the Glad Garbage Bags Tuff Stuff Drawstring 56L. The prevailing review of these bags was that they won't break. This range comes with something called ForceFlex, a diamond pattern that allows the product to stretch around sharp objects.
The drawstring makes them easy to close and carry and they are suitable for kitchen waste, gardens or even storage. You can also buy them with the option of a eucalyptus scent to help keep odours under control.
They are available for around $4 for a pack of 15.
Simplehuman Code C Custom Fit Liners are our pick for best high-end garbage bags. A huge range of positive reviews from Amazon, Bed Bath N Beyond and other sites state versions of the same message – that they are worth the extra expense.
These bags are durable and made with double seams to prevent tearing. They have strong drawstring handles and come in a simple dispenser pack.
Made in California, a pack of 60 will set you back around $25-$30 plus postage.
Just as the name suggests, BioBag Compostable Superline Bin Liners are fully compostable and are our pick for best garbage bag for sustainability. We opted for the Superline range, which is thicker and more durable than BioBag's standard compostable bin liner range.
Compostable bags are 100% biodegradable and will break down organically. Strong yet highly breathable, they are plastic free and made from sustainably sourced plant starch. The product will break down in 10-45 days depending on the method used.
When choosing a garbage bag, consider the following factors:
It's important to find a product that won't split, rip or tear when full.
There are handles and drawstring options, while some don't have handles at all.
A number of options come with various scents to improve the smell of your kitchen.

finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.

When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
