Disposable roasting pans, too.

Where are you getting plastic bags? I have not seen plastic bags anywhere in Western Washington for a long time now. It's paper, reusable, or that other kind of recyclable plastic like you can get at Walmart.

Even before there started being a push to ban them in some places, I was always kind of annoyed by them since they tear so easily if you put more than one or two items in them. I remember walking up the stairs to my last apartment with like twenty of them in my arms since I didn't want to make the trip any more times than I needed to and thinking to myself how much easier it would be if it were all in four paper bags or whatever.

One advantage of plastic bags is they are somewhat leakproof (some of them). I reused quite a few for cat litter box cleaning. Can easily take 2 bags a day.
Another one, they are light. Compartmentalizing travel bag with "one set of clothes per plastic bag" didn't add any weight but allowed for much better management of space.

I keep a one gallon lidded trash bin outside my back door for clumped litter. It takes about four days or so to fill (I have a small cat), at which point I switch out the bag and toss the old bag with litter into the dumpster. The grocery bags are too big for that plus we get charged 10 per bag locally so I just buy a roll of small bags (usually 3-4 gallons as I can't find any one gallon bags).

I assume they are the newer, thicker kind?

Yes, they could be (and I do) reuse them at least once or twice.
