I read the previous review about Waste Management taking too long to do the pickup and decided to ask a local handyman to help me take the bagsters to the dump. He charged me less than 1/5 what WM charged (he needed the work) but got my three bagsters out of our yard within a day with his pickup and a helper.
As for the Bagsters themselves, I have been really happy with them--I like how the sides go up as you add more materials and they are very sturdy. In addition, if you need a regular dumpster for more than a week the price to keep it goes up quickly. With the bagster you keep it as long as you need to without extra fees adding up, you just pay the $30 for each one you buy at Home Depot.
Recently purchased two Bagsters from Home Depot to dispose of all tearout material from our bathroom remodel. Before filling, I lined up both bags one in front of the other along the side of our driveway to avoid power/cable lines etc. and still give us access to our garage. Both bags easily held all material, we signed the waiver for driveway access and were careful to follow the instructions included with the bags. I registered with Bagster online & scheduled the pickup on a Saturday, I selected Monday for my ready-for-pickup date & the truck arrived on Tuesday (next day) for pickup. Professional driver, backed right down the driveway, quiet truck and picked up each bag by crane with no incidents, no bag tears, spillage, etc. No customer service complaints here! Economical cost compared to other dumpster prices – I would definitely use this service again for any other future projects and recommend to others!

Review 45 for Dumpster in a Bag
from Long Island,NY
Age Range:55 to 64

No, I do not recommend this product.
Great concept but not in New York state. Filled bagster with bathroom(5x7) renovation debris, called waste management on Thurs. paid via credit card $249.00 and told 1-3 days for pick-up. On Tues 2 young men arrived from 1800Got Junk for pick-up and demanded another $200.00 to remove Bagster by hand. I called WM finally spoke with a supervisor who stated that NY State does not allow them to use their equipment with a crane on it...as depicted in front of the Bagster package. This went on for several days as 1800Got Junk, would come back and demand more money to remove the Bagster. Finally got WM corporate HQ involved and they resolved the problem and bag was removed. Bagster should not be sold in NY State because they cannot meet what is advertised its more of pain..would have been easier to order a metal dumpster..
Used it to gut as all half bath. Pickup was a breeze and they came within 48 hours after I called. I found a coupon and was able to save a few bucks on the pickup as well. The coupon was 100-wmsal-178374
This was a great experience and a great alternative to hauling the stuff to the dump yourself or the recycling center. The bagsters were picked up in a 3 day window with no hassle on my part. I will use this service again.
The hardest part was filling this bag with shingles as the sides aren't really up to keeping up. Overall I'm very happy that between the two bags I had I was able to haul away somewhere around 16 squares of shingles (estimated). I was worried it may be too heavy for them to take, but they came and picked up both no problem.
Decided to try the Bagster out for our renovation project. We normally box up plaster/lathe and take to the dump. But this project was going to be bigger and have more waste than we are used to.
I got it from HomeDepot. The day of demolition we set it up and filled it up. Went online, signed up on Waste Management and they came a few days later to pick up.
My only teeny tiny issue was that they came at 5am to pick up while we were sleeping of course and our cars were blocking so we had to move them. They do not say what time they will pick up in their notices.
It was smaller than I anticipated. It holds a decent amount, and convinience over renting a full dumster is nice - just smaller than I wanted.
2 - MAKE SURE _YOU_ check on if Waste Management picks up in your area. It's advertised on TV here, a few stores have them (most say they ran out) but the truth came out when we tried to schedule a pickup online... "Sorry, we don't service your area yet." NOT HAPPY
Still need to call WM to see if they'll pick it up. If not, it'll turn into a nice container to haul stuff to the dump.

Review 55 for Dumpster in a Bag
from Denver, CO, USA
WM picked up in less than 24 hours. Woo hoo!
PostedApril 15, 2014
I requested my pick up in the evening...WM was there the NEXT DAY at 1 PM. Loved it. I was done with the project, wanted the bags gone so everything would start looking great! I'm in the Denver, CO area and I would definitely use Bagster again for any small project.
I had one last year too and used it all summer for all the weeds, tree limbs, broken patio chairs, etc. It holds a lot of stuff and sure beats making trips to the dump. Fill it up then call to have it picked up, yes there's a charge, but it's still cheaper than several dump runs.
This is a great concept/ item and the service was very quick. I am renovating an old house and needed it to discard old plasterboard, carpet etc... The bag is very large and roomy. I called on a Friday to schedule a pick up (in the Catskill region) and it was picked up the next business day, Monday. I will buy more very soon.
Pros: Durable, Lots of Features, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Good Size & Weight

Review 59 for Dumpster in a Bag
It has been fantastic - garage basement almost cleaned out.
My neighbors are jealous, the city pick-up people were awed and spent a lot of time talking with me about it. It is the best investment I have ever made. It folds (the sides to make it sturdier and the amount of things we needed to get rid of after 26 years-this product was a god send.
this was the easiest method of getting rid of my project's waste. Just filled it and then went online and scheduled the pickup (after paying fee of course). it was picked up the same day I had requested. One thing to note on the pickup, just make sure they are able to get a large truck next to it. I had mine on the sidewalk next to the street and a neighbor ended up parking in front of it. Luckily they were able to access it via my driveway. If they have to come back they charge the pickup fee again.
