If you are a regular customer at Home Depot and/or Lowe’s, then it is quite possible that you have noticed those stands with the displays of disposable dumpster bags. These are the bags being advertised to be a lot more convenient to use and they are more affordable then renting a dumpster would be for those home clean-ups.
Are these dumpster bags actually better than a dumpster for the removal of home waste? Well, this all depends on how large of a project you have, and what your budget is. You can look for yourself below and see the comparisons before deciding the best option is the right one for you.
Difference Between Dumpster and Dumpster Bags
Both, the waste disposable bags and dumpsters are both used as containers used on one’s property to place debris and junk, which is later hauled off. Of course, there are a few main features that make them stand apart of one another: If you are thinking about using the disposable dumpster bag, you are going to want to check-in with the company that provides the service and be certain they offer pick-ups in your region. Keep in mind, whether the bag is used inside or outside of the home, it has to be within the 18-ft., reach of the hydraulic arm on the truck, otherwise, it won’t be possible for pick-up.
If you are considering a dumpster, it is best to estimate the weight of your junk and debris the best that you can in order to be sure you get one that is going to be big enough, and yet, one that is not going to be so big your wasting your money.
Pricing of Dumpster Bags vs. Dumpsters
The key feature of the dumpster bags is their low prices, you can find them starting at $29.99 (certain brands). However, before purchasing it is significant that you know that the price only covers the bag itself. There will be an additional charge for the pick-up.
The cost for the pick-up (collection) of a dumpster bag once it has been filled with debris, and loaded with your junk, is calculated using a 3,300lb weight limit (3 cubic yards of debris and junk), and averaging around $129.00, plus the $29.00 cost of the bag itself. So, depending on the company that offers the service and your location the total cost could be up around $160.00, take or give a few dollars, which is not so bad when you consider the cost of a dumpster itself.
Dumpsters vs. Dumpster Bags: Final Verdict
The concept of the dumpster bag is interesting, it gives a new idea to an old concept, making the removal of home debris and other junk easier and less costly than ever before, especially for smaller scale projects. However, for those large-scale projects, it would be more affordable to use a traditional dumpster, whereas, the same container is usable again and again, and a single dumpster bag should only be used once and thrown away, making them better for the smaller projects.
