Declutter Debris with Your Own Portable Dumpster - The Bagster

A fellow organizer alerted me to the Bagster - basically a portable dumpster. Just buy the bag from a hardware store, fill it with up to 3300 pounds of trash, and arrange for pickup. The bag is around $30 and pickup costs from $50-100 based on where you live. Here's more info from their website:
Buy the Bagster® bag

at your local home improvement retailer, including participating locations of The Home Depot. Store it and use it when you need it. It's compact, always on hand and ready to take on your project waste.

Bagster® is the perfect cleanup solution for many types of projects, including:

  • Renovations/remodeling
  • Organizing a garage or attic
  • Landscaping*
  • Roofing
  • Concrete and stone work
  • And much more
 The Bagster® bag

can take on the waste for a wide variety of projects. It's simple to set up, and strong enough to hold up to 3300 lb of debris or waste. It's a flexible solution, keeping you always in control of your projects. The Bagster® bag is the right size to help you take on renovations, landscaping* or home projects that don't require a full-size dumpster.

Since the Bagster® bag is yours to use whenever you want, for as long as you need, you don't have to wait for a dumpster to be delivered or finish your project within a rental time period. It's easy to use, too:

  • Take out your Bagster® bag whenever you're ready to use it.
  • Place the Bagster® bag on your property for convenient loading as you take on your project.
  • Before filling, place the Bagster® bag according to placement directions included with your Bagster® bag.
  • Before loading, unfold your Bagster® bag and stand inside of it. Starting at the corner, fold the sides down and out. This makes the sides of the Bagster® bag more rigid. Roll the sides up as you fill it.

Finishing your project cleanup

is easy with the Bagster® bag. Schedule your collection online or by phone at 1-877-789-BAGS (2247). And it's gone! It's a cost-effective disposal service from Waste Management.

Here's how scheduling a collection works:

  • Schedule and pay for your collection online or call our toll-free phone number.
  • Our friendly and professional team will collect your Bagster® bag and properly dispose of its contents.
  • Waste Management* will collect your Bagster® bag within three business days of when you schedule collection.

 Isn't this a simple solution to getting rid of large quantities of trash and debris?
