Bags are the New Dumpsters

When it’s time for a renovation, renting dumpsters can be a pain. Plus they take up space in your driveway or lawn and can take far too long to get hauled away. Waste Management’s Bagster system – an 8x4x2.6 bag- is a super easy way to haul away waste from a demo, landscape clean-up or a home project that doesn’t require a giant dumpster.
The bagster holds up to 3,300 pounds of debris and you can purchase them from your local Home Depot. It’s packed flat so you can store it in your garage and have it ready for a last minute weekend project or a backyard clean up. Once you’re done filling it, give your local Waste Management a ring and they’ll come to collect and dispose of it’s contents properly within three business days.

If you haven’t seen the commercials for this yet, you’ll be shocked at how much drywall, tree limbs and roofing it can carry. Find out if you have a local carrier here.
