I ve never seen 6mil bags. The heaviest bags available here are 4 mil.
You might try online. Or just use garbage cans.

Those are only 3 mil. That's fine for me, usually. As mentioned by Ron, anything that will poke thru a typical construction bag should probably go into a trash can.

Try an Industrial Supply Center: Such as W.W. Grainger, Fastenal, McMaster-Carr. I get mine from the local Fastenal. Not sure of mil thickness, but they are thick. They are NOT cheap either, but when I need one, I NEED it. Another source, but these will be one cubic-yard sized, square shaped bags, would be a local chemical supply and/or Haz-Mat Center. They have these cubic yard bags which have extra material at the top for closure. They make great bags for putting luggage into, then putting this in the back of a pick-it-up truck for traveling. No rain in these. David
