TIPS FOR FILLING THE BAGSTER BAG

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. You may put lighter debris in with your heavy debris up to the top edge of the Bagster bag for complete use of the Bagster bag.

SETTING UP

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 it.

SAFETY

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.)

TEARS IN THE BAGSTER BAG

If your Bagster bag becomes punctured, it will not continue to tear unless a sharp object continues to cut through the material.

REUSE

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.
