Bagster - Like Having Your Own Dumpster in a Bag

Do-it-yourselfers must be thrilled with this one. No longer will they have to put out the big bucks for a dumpster that’s much too big for their project. Dumpsters are huge, unsightly, in the way and can ruin a good lawn.

It’s been a dilemma for DIYers who tackle challenging projects for years. A normal garbage can cannot accommodate their needs but please, not a dumpster!

Now all that lovely wreckage that you're producing as you demolish your home--sorry, "renovate" your home--can simply be put in a bag!

As long as the residue does not exceed 3,300 pounds and is no more than 3 cubic yards, the Bagster® will solve the problem!

What is The Bagster®?

What is it? It is a woven green bag—designed like a tote bag—created for removal of heavy contents from a job site.

Purchased from your local home improvement store or even online, the Bagster® is lightweight but tough.

As you rip apart your kitchen, bathroom, garage or whatever it is you’re updating, just toss the waste into the Bagster®. When it is full, call your waste removal company (Waste Management) and they’ll come and haul it away.

The Bagster in Action

Advantages Of Using The Bagster

Dumpsters are rentals. You have to arrange for them to be dropped off and picked up again and you're on the clock. With the Bagster®, your time is your own. Work fast and furiously or at a leisurely pace. The Bagster® will be there when you need it. In the meantime, it's not in the way. Try to hide a dumpster. You can't!

And the financial outlay, compared to a dumpster, is very reasonable. The price of the Bagster® is about $30.00. Pick up charges are commonly $139.00 with a lower price for return trips. (These prices can vary according to region. Check with your local Waste Management Services office or alternative pickup service.)

Some Things Bagster Cannot Do

As in all good things, the Bagster® has it's limitations. It can't take care of huge jobs that exceed it's current boundaries of weight and size. Though you can certainly schedule more pick ups, some jobs just call for a dumpster.

The Bagster® also cannot accommodate certain types of waste. Paints, toxic chemicals, appliances, batteries, tires, old computers and other electronics, and food, to name a few, should not be put in a Bagster®.
