Bagster Bag’s Unique Waste Solution

I’ve been hearing more and more about the Bagster Bag from Waste Management so I thought it would be good to share this new concept with all of you. To help spread the word about this great new way to clear up construction waste the folks at Bagster are going to sponsor a $50 Visa Gift Card for one of our lucky readers. Before I go into the rules for this giveaway I’d like you to read the information below about Bagster Bags.

About The Bagster Bag

  • While households look for ways to save money, more homeowners are tackling projects themselves from bathroom remodels to flooring projects to spring cleaning. The Bagster® bag is an innovative, convenient and affordable solution for smaller home improvement projects.
  • The Bagster® bag is a highly durable, woven bag designed for disposing as much as 3,300 pounds of debris and is big enough to hold full sheets of plywood, doors and even a bathtub.
  • The Bagster® bag is a convenient choice for any home improvement project.

– Often times construction debris can’t be picked up from curbside, so consumer now have a great solution when a dumpster is too large for the project.
– The Bagster® bag is ready when you are – great for last-minute projects or ones that need an extended period of time to complete.
– Consumers can use the bag for as long as they like, then schedule a collection when the bag is full or their project is finished. The bag and collection service are always ready, putting consumers in control of their projects.
– Collection can be scheduled online at or by calling 1-877-789-2247, and Waste Management will collect the bag within three business days.

  • The Bagster® bag is an affordable solution for homeowners and a great way to save money on do-it-yourself projects.

– Bagster® bags cost just $29.95 and the flat rate collection fee ranges from $79 to $159 per bag, depending on your area – 50 to 70 percent less than a dumpster rental.

  • Waste Management has made the Bagster® bag a simple solution for waste and debris removal.

– Consumers can purchase the lightweight bag at more than 2,000 locations across the country, use it for as long as they like, then schedule a collection online or over the phone whenever they are ready.

    Thanks for a great giveaway!

    I’m an email subscriber.

  10. Jill L says:

    What a fantastic idea!! Love that we can have it as long as we need it. Sometimes our projects run way past what we think. Much better than having a big old dumpster sitting in my yard.

  11. My Dad is a DIY kind of person and I think he would benefit greatly from it! He is always finding something to do and make so he won’t succumb to boredom.

  12. Robert F says:

    I think the Bagster is a GREAT idea and I am surprised that nobody thought of it before. I used to go to the construction sites every day with my dad during the summers, and I was shocked at what pig stys they looked like. If the Bagster Bags eliminate even half of problem, they are worth it.

  21. Suzanne K says:

    What a great idea! Definitely filed this one for future reference!

    I think it’s great mainly because I think it would not only be easier to set up (won’t need a big truck to bring around the dumpster) and it would probably save money!

  39. Jacob LaFountaine says:

    I like that it holds a ton of garbage in weight

  40. Holly says:

    That is pretty cool, would be handy for any do it yourself project!

  44. Debbie C says:

    I think the Bagster Bag system is great for homeowners who want to clean up remodeling debris and other such things at their own pace. I may be using Bagster soon for a project soon.

  45. Daniel M says:

    looks pretty handy

  46. Susan C says:

    I think it’s a great idea! Unfortunately, it is not in Oregon yet.

  49. Tari L. says:

    We used Bagster when we remodeled our kitchen. We couldn’t believe how much it held. Arranging for pick-up was very easy. Would definately recommend to others.

  50. kittycardero says:

    The Bagster Bag system seems like a great solution for waste from big projects.

  52. julieh says:

  53. Holly says:

    good idea to me as long as they are pretty vulnerable to tears and other destructive problems

  54. DANIELLE W says:

    I think this is an awsome idea, it will easily fit in areas a dumpster wont. Also it doesnt look so ugly like a huge dumpster does.
    texaswaitress (at) live (dot) com

  55. spirit_kim says:

    I’m all about organization, this fits the bill. Grab the bag and I’m ready to start.

  56. Deborah Rosen says:

    I think the Bagster Bag system is a genius idea – those of us who take a little (ha!) longer to work on projects don’t have to worry about how long we’re paying for an ugly dumpster.

  57. Erica C. says:

    I think the bag is a great idea. It’s much more easier than going to the dump, etc.

  58. Katharina says:

    He doesn’t know it yet :-) but I have some major MAJOR home projects on the agenda for my husband to tackle during the summer and fall. The Bagster Bag System would be perfect for the cleanup after a total bathroom makeover and a deck that involves altering a whole wall to add glass doors, etc.
    Katharina angelsandmusic[at]gmail[dot]com

  59. I like the idea. wish it were available in my area.

  60. Dara Nix says:

    I think that it is a great idea for people who do not have access to a county/city dump in their area. It would be cheaper for people in these areas to use this service than to rent a dumpster. However, for those who DO have a dump accessible to them, I don’t think this is a very cost effective idea!

  61. Erica says:

    I LOVE the Bagster Bag system. I like how convenient the bag is. Instead of dropping the debris randomly on the ground, I could instead use the Bagster Bag to tidy up the work space. INCREDIBLE idea :) I’d buy one for my boyfriend’s father.♥♥.

  62. michelle says:

    This is fantastic! We just rented a big ol’ dumpster for a project that wasn’t really that big. It was expensive and unnecessary. That’s why the Bagster is great :)

  63. jeannie dinsmore says:

    I could use the gift card :-)

  64. Mary Gardner says:

    i really love the Bagster Bag system! What a great idea!

    jagar0047 at yahoo dot com

  65. I thought it was a great system.

    For my family it would have been great. I didn’t know about this. When my father passed away he left “stuff” that we didn’t know what to do with. This would have been a great help.

  66. I think they are a great idea
    I liked you on fb

  67. steve says:

    great idea

  68. Jimmy says:

    I think it’s a great way to get rid of garbage when you’re doing home improvement.

  69. Ashley says:

    That’s a handy system for those who don’t want to be left hauling the remnants of a project to the dump themselves or dealing with local garbage collectors.

  70. Sylvie W says:

    This bag is great. Companies also talk about listening to their clients and thinking of them but normally it is not so. This is an example of creating something the normal consumer needs. Congrats.

  71. Elizabeth Neal says:

    Good idea. My boyfriend has been using these of late in his work.
    He has been doing tear outs down on the gulf in MS where it had

  72. I love the Bagster Bag System! It’s easy to use and very convenient!

  73. Rosey says:

    I love the idea, I think it is the perfect solution for a multitude of challenges when working on things such as house renovation. And big enough to hold a bathtub?? Woot! That made me laugh, but hey, when you’re in the middle of a project and you have something like the Bagster, you’re going to be a very happy person.

  74. clynsg says:

    I think it is a great idea, buy don’t know if it would work here–have no idea if they would travel to my area to pick it up!

  75. Nicole Greene says:

    I love the Bagster Bag system and think it is JUST what my hubby needs!

  76. Diane Baum says:

    I think it would be great to make space quickly

  77. Susan Smith says:

    Sounds like a good way to get rid of construtions materials without having a huge dumpster taking up space in your driveway

  78. sheila k. says:

    Wow, this is a great way to deal with the countless odds and ends needing to be stored during a construction or renovation project.

  79. kolpin says:

    great system–i just wish the pickup costs were cheaper

    kolpin4680 at gmail dot com

  80. Karen M says:

    The Bagster Bag system is a great idea. We did a few big projects on our previous house before we sold it and I know the Bagster would have helped us quite a bit.

  81. Erin T says:

    I think this is a great idea and a way to keep everything nice and neat

  82. kathy pease says:

    this sounds pretty convenient and a great alternative to dumpsters..i wish we had had one when we tore out our basement

    The Bagster seems like a really great way to consolidate the waste and debris that comes with construction!

  84. barbara wright says:

    I think it’s a great idea and I’m glad they have it at Home Depot!

  85. Amy DeLong says:

    This would be a great money saver! I like that we could keep it as long as we needed to without incurring any charges… then call at our convenience when we’re ready to have the Bagster picked up for disposal! Great idea!

  91. R Hicks says:

    I am amazed at the bagster and how rugged it is. Such a great convenience for someone doing remodeling.

  93. Chrysa says:

    I think the system looks like a great idea!

  94. MamiS says:

    I just saw this commercial for the first time yesterday. I think it’s a neat concept, very neat, however is it just picked up by local recyclers and would they charge you a bigger fee for picking up such a large amount?

  95. Buddy Garrett says:

    I think the Bagster Bag System would be great. It would make ceaning up easier.

  96. Sarah L says:

    I like that you can keep it for as long as you need it which would be great for an on-going project.
