TIPS FOR FILLING THE BAGSTER BAG

LIFTING STRAPS

Before filling, make sure the yellow lifting straps are outside the Bagster bag.

WEIGHT RESTRICTION FOR HEAVY MATERIALS

One cubic yard of heavy materials, such as dirt, brick, rock, sod, concrete, sand, asphalt, plaster, stucco, etc., can be placed in the Bagster bag. Contractors using the Bagster to remove debris may put lighter debris in with your heavy or construction debris up to the top edge of the dumpster bag for complete use of your small, medium, or large-sized construction debris removal needs.

SETTING UP YOUR BAGSTER

Before filling, unfold your Bagster bag. Stand inside it and starting in one corner of the Bagster bag, fold the sides out and down. This makes the Bagster bag more rigid. Then roll the sides back up as you fill the Bagster with debris from your construction job.

BAGSTER SAFETY TIPS

You can fill your Bagster bag with debris or waste up to the top. For collection, the yellow lifting straps must be able to connect above the Bagster bag. (Additional fees may apply if your scheduled collection cannot be performed due to overloading.)

WHAT TO DO IF YOUR BAGSTER TEARS

Yes, you can continue to use your Bagster bag even if it has been punctured by a sharp object! Your Bagster dumpster bag won't continue to tear if you've removed the sharp object that has caused the puncture, tear, or rupture in the bag. Check if the sharp object will cause further damage to the dumpster bag and remove or reposition it if possible. Continue your project safely!

IS THE BAGSTER REUSABLE?

For safety reasons, the Bagster bag is a single-use product and CANNOT be used more than one time. Your Bagster bag will NOT be returned after it has been collected. Your Bagster bag and all of its contents will be disposed of at the time of collection.
