    We have about 20 skids of these super sacks - around 200 bags.

    They were used to hold plastic pellets. We have changed our process, so now we do not need these anymore. But they are taking up space. And space is what I need.

    Any thoughts on any plastics groups or maybe wooden pellet companies that may be interested?

    We don't have an asking price, we welcome offers...

    I've searched and searched but have not found anyone who is in need of them.

    Thank you in advance.

    Warning: A silly question coming...
    Did you try to return them to the vendor?

    The material is non-hazardous...if space is what you need, I'll bet that throwing them out into a dumpster would cost less than processing a non-standard order to a new "customer"....it would certainly free up your space faster.

    Weird thing that keeps coming up in my shop...space often has more value than material or disposal costs...and the expense (if any) has an additional benefit on taxes.

    Companies that might use these sacks include:
    Wood pellet
    firewood
    bulk fittings (nuts and bolts and washers)...though your bags may not be burst rated
    Goodwill & Salvation Army (read "donation") for disposing of clothing
    Recycling companies (copper & paper...though paper usually uses balers)

    HTH

    Just as an FYI, they are also used at some dry dog food manufactures to package "Pig feed". That would be dry dog food that for one reason or another can't be sold in stores.

    Just to update - The bags have all been inspected, cleaned and consolidated to 11 skids instead of 20 now.
