Ok, so I grabbed a black trash bag out of the garage and cut through the top seam (where the yellow inner ribbon is, so where the bag ties shut when full). I cut down to basically cut through the seam and pull out the inner ribbon (ours was a yellow tie). Then, I removed the tie altogether and tore the bag down each side seam. It came apart very easily, but if yours doesn't just by tearing you could always cut on the line.
