The Bagster

bagster.jpgOur good buddy Ed recently gave us the heads up on a cool new item for those of you who live in Connecticut, Massachusetts, or Rhode Island. It’s a thing called The Bagster and it looks like a great idea for anyone thinking about starting a small to medium sized project. The Bagster is a small, portable dumpster over 8’ long, 4’ wide and 2’ high. It’s made of plastic and can hold about three yards of material. It’s not your average kitchen bag either; the Bagster is strong enough to hold 3,300 pounds.

But the best part is that once you fill the thing up, all you have to do is make a phone call and Bagster comes and picks it up. That’s it.

We can think of about a thousand situations where The Bagster would be useful. Getting a full dumpster is a real process; you have to have the room for it, they’re ugly as hell, and they tend to destroy your lawn no matter what you do. Also, sometimes you just don’t need something that big. It’s hard to imagine The Bagster not catching on.

The Bags costs around $30 and are available at Ace, True Value, Home Depot, and a number of other retail stores. The pick-up charge looks to be around $120-$130, so you get the whole deal sealed for about $150. This is a very reasonable price to pay for this kind of service.

The Bagster website has information for franchising, so be on the lookout for this to come to your area.

Ed will be be setting his up at a jobsite and we’ll let you know how it works out.

At Home Depot, Ace, True Value, and others.

Bag goes to the dump with the trash in it. Not recycled -- not biodegradable -- not eco friendly.

I believe that the bag leaves and doesn't come back.

Do you get the bag back when finished being dumped?? or is this kept...

still cheaper to take it yourself.
@ 130 a pop..you are paying about $70 per removal..at least..because for about $60 I can dump twice that. But you don't have to dump it yourself. Or drive it there. Guess it depends on the value you put on those two things to determine whether or not it would be worth it.
