The Bagster - Soft-sided dumpster

Any one have experience with soft-sided dumpsters like The Bagster?

Looking at installing hardwood floors on first floor so I'll be ripping out carpet (living room) and some sort of fake-wood floors (kitchen, dining, half bath and halls/entryway). Total of about 625 sq. ft. of flooring.

I don't think I need a big dumpster, and saw a soft-sided dumpster somewhere and wondered about it. Seems like a good alternative, it costs about $160 for the bag and pickup.

Had a friend use one a couple years ago and they had no complaints. Doesn't take up a lot of space and holds a surprising amount of "stuff".

Check around on dumpster pricing also, small ones are not very expensive, but you do need to be aware of the amount of time you are permitted to have it on your premise. They often charge fees if you keep them more than a week, which you don't have with the "bagster"

Pulled out about 700ft of carpet and 100 ft of vinyl flooring last spring tied it up in bundles and took it to a lucas county bulk drop off site they had the next weekend. Listings can be found on LC soild waste website. Cost was free other than the paib of having itvin garage for a week.

Thanks guys; a small dumpster would run me about $350 for a week, and I just don't think I have that much to dispose of. I live in Monroe County so LCSW isn't an option (assuming they check IDs or license plates).
