Bagster Dumpster in a Bag Provides Relief in Chicago-Area Flooding Aftermath

In the aftermath of severe flooding across the Chicago area, an increasing number of property owners are turning to an innovative product available at local home improvement stores to dispose of floodwater debris quickly. 


Called the Bagster®, Dumpster in a Bag®, it offers homeowners—including many in the western suburbs whose basements were recently flooded—an easy way to dispose of debris that won’t fit into a typical residential garbage container but doesn’t require an industrial-sized dumpster.


Introduced recently by Waste Management, Bagster® is strong enough to hold up to 3,300 pounds of flood debris items, such as carpeting materials, damaged furniture and sheets of paneling and sheetrock. The bag is 8 feet long, 4 feet wide and two and a half feet in height. It comes in a plastic package and may be easily unfolded for use in a home driveway.
