The BagsterŪ is a tough disposal container made of a heavy-duty woven material that won't tear if punctured. It's the perfect size and strength for debris and household junk, and can hold up to 3,300 pounds or three cubic yards of material. It is 8 feet long, 4 feet wide, and two and a half feet in height, large enough to hold sheets of plywood.

"Our customers have found it ideal for home improvement projects and easy to use," said Dan Henry, who manages the BagsterŪ service for Waste Management in the Chicago area. "It's a good alternative to large industrial disposal containers that may be larger than needed and also less costly. BagsterŪ is available at most home improvement and hardware stores and can be filled at the homeowner's own pace when projects get extended."

Dad can keep the bag as long as he needs to complete his projects and then have it quickly removed by contacting Waste Management's BagsterŪ service for quick collection.

Waste Management offers the service in Cook, DuPage, Lake, and Kane counties in the Chicago area.

Unlike those familiar large industrial waste boxes, the BagsterŪ is economical. It has a retail price of $29.95 in the Chicago area and a collection fee of $129. Additional BagsterŪ containers will be collected for $104 each if picked up at the same time.

The BagsterŪ can be purchased at local home improvement stores and a call to Waste Management ensures it is collected quickly. In the Chicago area, The BagsterŪ is available at The Home Depot, Lowe's, Menards, and select Ace and True Value hardware stores. It also is available through Amazon.com.

The BagsterŪ's common uses include disposal of household junk and cleanup debris from home improvement projects. In Illinois, it cannot be used for the disposal of yard wastes, electronics, appliances, tires, food wastes, large tree stumps or toxic or hazardous wastes, which are not allowed in landfills.
