Scope and Contents:
Trash near dumpsters, including green plastic trash bags. "Kodak Safety Film 6017" imprint on film edge. In an email sent Feb. 9, 2015, Roger Sherman (NMAH curator), indicated that plastic trash bags probably didn't become common until the 1960s. Plastic garbage bags were invented in 1950, but the first green plastic garbage bags for the home were sold by Union Carbide (Glad Bags) in the late 1960s.
