People doing small projects such as attic or basement clean outs or yard clean up now have two options for waste removal associated with these projects. They can opt for a bagster or renting a dumpster appropriately sized to their job. Below we’ve discussed the decision of dumpster vs bagster to help you decide.


In some cases, homeowners doing a small project might rent a Bagster. These are essentially soft-sided dumpsters. A Bagster takes up less space than a traditional dumpster and as long as the yellow handles meet in the middle, the Bagster can be picked up and removed. They hold up to 3,300 pounds of waste. Although there are no container or storage fees, the pickup fee can be quite steep. In areas that have rules prohibiting dumpsters, a Bagster can sometimes be approved. This handled on a case-by-case basis, so you’ll need to coordinate with the appropriate governing body in your town.


Homeowners in the areas of Sussex County, New Jersey and Orange County, New York have the option of renting a smaller size dumpster. These smaller rental dumpsters fit in most spaces. Unlike a Bagster, smaller dumpsters have hard sides. This is perfect for any projects that may have sharp, splintered or rusted debris. Our affordable prices make it easy to rent a dumpster without breaking your budget.

Bagsters and dumpsters are both solutions for removing unwanted debris and large items from construction, spring cleaning, and other renovation projects. Whichever option you choose, keep your budget and your needs in mind. In our experience, most people elect for a small dumpster because it does a better job of containing the debris and is frequently less expensive than a Bagster which will only hold 3 cubic yards of debris.
