I used bagster once on an out of state project. Office seem to think a job with 4,000 feet of pipe installed, and building a 24x24 steel building would only generate a pickup load of trash. Dont worry about all those tools you took down, the trash will sit between them. Some how my time, and a laborers time to load, haul, and unload into the shop dumpster seemed way cheaper then a damned roll off. Finally found a few bagsters and went for it.

Are they a pain? yes. You would be surprised what you can fit in one with a little planning. I filled on site, and since the site was secure and after I left there would be no access, I moved two of them with a forklift using their lifting straps. Set outside the gate, parked my rental equipment out of the way and left. I called WM with specific instructions including location, backing in, and pick up RFN. I talked to my client a few days later and they were promptly picked up. Funny, he called to complain my rental skid steer, mini excavator, and skytrack were still on site. The rental company received the same instructions as WM and it took them a week to follow through.

Re: The "bagster"

We have found that if you take the time, you can easily build a temporary structure in them, be it with lumber or pipe, to hold the bag so you can fill it to max capacity.
We did it a couple times with lumber, then just used wood right after
