Dear Mr. Zhou:

In your letter dated November 28, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Photographs were provided with your letter. The trash bags are composed of polyethylene sheeting and are imported in rolls with perforations between each bag so that they may be easily separated. The garment hangers are composed of steel wire and are for use in dry cleaners. They may be imported with or without paper coverings. The plastic garment covers are flimsy, disposable bags for use in dry cleaners to be placed over laundered garments. The bags are constructed of polyethylene film measuring 0.65 mil in thickness. They are imported in rolls with perforations between each bag so that they may be easily separated.

The applicable subheading for the polyethylene trash bags and garment covers will be 3923.21.0095, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for articles for the conveyance or packing of goods, of plasticssacks and bags (including cones), of polymers of ethylene, other.
