Rubble sacks are reliable and tear-proof waste bags for any sort of refuse produced in the construction industry. Our product range includes various sizes of rubble sacks suitable for heavy materials. Rubble sacks at 123BigBags are made of polypropylene, an extra strong and high-quality material for high resistance and great durability. Whether for paper and plastic or for heavy waste and tiles, rubble sacks are ideal for heavy duty jobs. Our standard product range includes various rubble sacks in different sizes and with different product specifications. Which bag best suits your project, depends on the sort of product you intend to put into the sack.

Woven Polypropylene Rubble Sacks

Polypropylene is a thermoplastic macro-molecule (polymer) used in a variety of products and components such as packaging materials. In the building industry, polypropylene is widely used in rubble sacks thanks to the numerous advantages that polypropylene has over similar materials. The key merits of polypropylene builders' rubble bags are the great strength and good fatigue resistance of the material making the rubble sacks very tearproof. Furthermore, polypropylene is known to be highly resistant to chemicals and moisture, which makes it very popular in the building industry. Polypropylene sacks are ideal for heavy building materials such as bricks, stones and tiles.

LDPE Rubble Sacks

LDPE (Low Density Polypethylene) has been used commercially since the 20th century. LDPE is a thermoplastic which, like polypropylene, is widely used in various industries, such as construction and packaging. The main advantages of low density polyethylene in rubble sacks are its high impact and moisture resistances, which make LDPE rubble bags ideal for moist sand and waste after rainfalls etc. LDPE rubble sacks at 123BigBags are made of 150mµ fabric, resulting in tearproof and impervious bags suitable for heavy waste with sharp edges such as glass and tiles.

What Rubble Bag to Should I Buy?

The multiple different options for rubble bags can seem confusing and unintuitive. However here at 123BigBags we make your decisions as simple as possible. The first distinction we make is between polythene and polypropylene. Polythene is a single piece of plastic and is usually transparent like our Heavy Duty Rubble Bag.  These bags are waterproof and relatively strong. We measure their strength by using the plastic thickness in microns or gauge. Below is a table showing the conversion between micros and gauge. All our polythene rubble bags are made with a very high thickness to ensure the safety of the users.

 Gauge Thickness (microns)
 250 62.5
 300 75
 400 100
 500 125


The second type of rubble sack is made of woven polypropylene, like our Woven Rubble Bag. This is usually stronger than polythene. Its strength is measured just like a normal bulk bag, in grammage. All our Polypropylene rubble bags have a minimum grammage of at least 100gr/m² this results in a safe working load (SWL) of 25 kg

How Many Rubble Sacks in a Skip?

The answer to this question depends on the size of your skip. In the uk there are many different size skips to choose from however they all give their measurements in yards. As a general rule we say you can fit up to 10 Rubble Sacks per yard of skip. This means if you have a large builders skip of 8 yards you could fit up to 80 Rubble Sacks inside. A smaller skip of only 6 yards could fit up to 60 Rubble Sacks. Please see the table below for more skip variations.

 Skip Size (yards) No. of Rubble Sacks
 4 (Small) 30-40
 6 (Medium) 40-60
 8 (Large) 60-80
 12 (Extra-Large) 80-120

Please note these figures are just estimations and your experience may vary depending on the degree to which your Rubble Sacks are filled.
