The Dumpster in a Bag purchased at Home Depot solves the getting rid of all that trash from a demo/construction project at home. It does require a call to Waste Management to schedule a pickup. I have used this product on three occasions and it has worked perfectly for me. I have used it for a 20X 40 deck demo, kitchen remodel and a tile and hardwood floor project. The system easily handled all of my debris removal at about the third of the cost of a roll off container. Plus I did not have to worry about any damage to my concrete driveway from the heavy equipment.
I am very pleased with the product and the results and highly recommend it.

I just filled two of these Bagsters. I generally like to use these occasionally and it was a convenient way to clean out the basement. However, there was an issue with one of them - the strap brook due to dry rot (it had been outside for a few months. So I had to empty all the contents into a new Bagster - quite a chore. No where on the Bagster not it's packaging does it mention how long it can be left out doors or that it could get dry rot and break.
The other heads up is the cost to have it picked up is rather high at $140, so when added to the cost of the bag it's a $170 transaction.

Easy to use. Fill up and they come take away. A bit pricey considering what you can get a 30 or 40 us dumpster for. But, if it's a small job around your house and you don't have room for a full size dumpster it's the trick. Highly recommend.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RoyalOakHomeowner Not durable or convenient, better to rent a roll-off dumpster
I've used this service before and often been left with the same impression, that the overall cost was only marginally better and only acceptable because I didn't need a full 10 yards I'd get for nearly the same price. This time, however, WM has added a restriction they don't tell you about until you schedule pickup online, at which point most people will have already bought their bag and loaded it. They now state they won't pick up from a driveway less than 12 feet wide. Most single car driveways won't meet this criteria, and it's nonsensical because unless WM is constantly pulling oversize vehicle permits, vehicles are restricted by DOT regulations to 102" (8 and a half feet) width.
Because my driveway is a single car driveway and therefore now 12 feet wide, my first pickup was canceled and I was asked to move the bagsters to the end of the driveway. This caused wear on the nylon and the bag tore on the second attempt to pickup. Not spending another $60, just save the money and aggravation and rent a real dumpster.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beach1 Way too easy!
Holds a ton of waste and the call for pick up and actual pick up of the bag went smoothly, efficiently and within two days. I'd definitely use the bag again!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jpsully Service is slow and terrible
Size is great for a smaller cleanup or job, but the wait for pickup is ridiculous. I picked up the bagster on July 6, and the earliest pickup date was July 13. A week is pretty long, but acceptable - except the date they give you is a five day window - and of course the 18th is when they showed up. I was in the house, they left a note saying there are branches over the bagster, which there are not if they pull into the driveway. I filled out the release form on the bag so they could get it from the driveway, but they did not, nor did they knock, or ring the bell. Left a note and drove away.
Rescheduling is of course another 5 day wait. If you want a full bagster in your yard for up to a month go ahead and use them, I never will again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jack Less expensive than a dumpster
Used this to dispose of my bathroom demo. Was glad I did not have to put a dumpster in my new driveway. Holds a lot! I did have to place it in the street in front of my house while awaiting pickup. This further encouraged "pickers". Annoying, but they lightened my load!. This company prefers that you do everything online. You have to pay extra if you want a special date or weekend pickup.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JWGacy Not great for your average renovation
I was a little disappointed when I unpacked the Bagster and saw the size. For some reason I expected it to be a little bit bigger in person. I am in the process of tearing out the master bedroom of my house. Not a huge room, probably 15ft x 14ft. The bag barely held the ceiling material before it filled up. I still have all of the walls that need to come down which would mean probably 2 more of these things at a cost of $30 per bag and $176 for the pickup. I called Groot and they were able to get me a 15yd dumpster for $385 and I get to keep the thing for 2 weeks. The Bagster is an innovative product but just not realistic or cost effective when you compare the cost per yard to the traditional dumpsters.
