Waste Management's new "Bagster" is a 4'x8'x2.5' woven fabric bag with huge straps. The intended use is as a disposable dumpster, but the construction itself is awe inspiring. How can we use this wonderful $30 product for other things?  We'll be using it as a liner for our general purpose trailer. My first thought was as an inexpensive raised-bed garden (floppy sides need some framing to make this work.  How about as a hammock? It doesn't hold water or it would make an interesting pool...

Anyone else interested in this thing?

I recently saw a documentary about the ancient art of basket boats. They were coated with bitumen to waterproof em. I suppose the modern stuff would be flexseal. Perhaps the bagster can be waterproofed to make pool. Or boat.

I am happy to see your comment and also below, I will use mine for the back of my pickup truck when I pickup compost and/or gravel. Great idea! "Why didn't I think of that?"

It's a cheap-skip then?
No fires, no greedy-boards?

Er, what's a greedy-board?
I "believe" it is a "support board" like they use on some Pickup trucks to raise the height of the sides to increase the load capacity....

Yes it is. There's some kind of humour in using a more earthy and less technically-correct word (esp with ref to "do not fill above this line")

When poeple hire skips it's at a fixed-rate. So they aim to get as much trash in the skip as they can. Nobody takes heed of "do not fill above this line", "greedy-boards" are things like old doors that you put at the sides that enable you to pile the crap higher without falling out the sides.
