Waste Management Bagster Bag

Sometimes a big clean-out, renovation or other project leaves you with too much waste for your regular trash service, but not enough to warrant a large temporary dumpster. Or perhaps you simply don’t have enough room for a full-sized roll-off dumpster at your location. Waste Management has a solution: the Bagster bag. It’s small enough to fold up and store but tough enough to hold up to 3,300lbs of waste. How much is that exactly?

  • 47 sheets of drywall (4’ x 8’, ½” thick)
  • 1,280 sq ft of hardwood flooring (¾” thick)
  • 180 wood or metal wall studs
  • 800-1,000 sq ft of roofing shingles
  • 900 sq ft of carpet or tile
  • 1 cubic yard of heavy materials like asphalt, brick, concrete, dirt, rock, sand, sod or stucco
Bagster bags can be purchased from Waste Management or from a number of retailers, including Home Depot, Amazon, and Bed Bath and Beyond. For more information, please visit thebagster.com
