ABG Bag has developed a family of lifting and containment bags that don’t require attaching to the aging equipment to remove it from the pole.  The bags are DOT, TSCA, and EPA compliant for containment during transport and provide a convenient way to store the leaking units until they can be safely processed.  Additionally, ABG bags are recyclable.
