New on the market is Bagster®, a portable trash dumpster made of a unique, woven material that can hold up to 3,300 pounds of household junk, construction debris, and even yard waste.
The process is simple:
- BUY the Bagster bag from one of the retail partners for $29.95.
- FILL with up to 3,300 pounds of household junk, construction debris and yard waste.*
- GONE after scheduling collection with Bagster on the phone or online, and paying the collection fee. Bags are gone in 1 – 3 business days. You need not be home for pick-up service.
The cost for a pick up in the Washington, DC area is $129 for the first bag and $99 for each additional bag.
Important to note, you can not put the following items in your Bagster bag; Appliances, Electronics, Tires, Food Waste, Large Stumps, Toxic/Hazardous Waste, Railroad Ties, and in some regions, Yard Waste.
I recently saw the bags for sale at True Value on 17th Street, near Dupont Circle. Find a retailer near you by visiting the Bagster’s web site.
If you live in an area without a drive way or which has a tall fence or landscaping element that prevents the bag from being more then 5 feet from the cube, be sure to check out the policies on bag placement.
Stay tuned for a follow-up post on the differences of using a service like Bagster as opposed to a local junk removal company.
