“Since many people tend to put off those home improvement projects they’ve been meaning to do, we decided to implement The Bagster Home Waste Loss Plan to give them the motivation they need to lose the waste and get their homes in shape,” said Scott Rhodes, managing director, Bagster.”

People looking to put their home on a waste loss plan can purchase the Bagster bag for $29.95 at home-improvement and hardware stores, as well as Amazon.com. When the bag is full, customers can schedule and pay for collection at www.thebagster.com. Collection costs range from $79 to $159, depending on the area—50% to 70% less than a dumpster rental.
