No! That bag will be perfectly fine if it is kept out of the weather elements and in a cool, dry place. Please keep in mind that if it does sit in the sun for an extended period of time it will effect the bags durability.

Unfortunately, no. We do not feel comfortable with the possibility that as the Pop Up Dumpster Bag is used, it will begin to weaken in terms of support. Depending on the debris type, the bag may see punctures or tears that with continued use could pose to be a dangerous situation when it is lifted to the truck. We do however offer purchases through our collection service where you are able to purchase more bags that will be delivered by the driver at the time of collection. Just let us know when you schedule your collection or give us a call at 877-224-4285 or email us at during your scheduling for your collection.

You may only use the Pop Up Dumpster bag for items permitted in the acceptable items on the Pop Up Dumpster Bag site or bag insert.

We do not suggest to put anything in the bag one person could not pick up by themselves.

Pop Up Dumpster Bag must be fully intact for collection. If the bag is for example ripped, torn, or punctured, we will unable to pick it up for collection. We recommend ordering a new bag to transfer your debris into.

Unfortunately, the sun can be harsh! If the bag sits for a prolonged amount of time in the elements, the material of the bag starts to break down and makes it susceptible to breakage. Be mindful of the weather including when it is time for collection.

If you know that you will be filling the bag within a few days and it will be picked up, you can place the bag in the instructed areas for pickup before filling based on our bag placement guidelines.

We are not responsible for anything outside of the Pop Up Dumpster Bag. As with many construction projects or renovations, objects such as nails can make their way onto the driveway. Please go over the space that the bag was sitting on after collection so that you know there aren't any sharp objects or dangerous material left behind. Our drivers will sweep the area to make sure they clean up any missed debris the best that they can.

The Pop Up Dumpster Bag must still be accessible even if it has snowed. That means for the safety of our drivers as well as anyone in the surrounding area, we request that you do your best to remove the snow off of the bag when the time comes for collections. 

It's important to remember, especially in the colder months that snow is a possibility! If for any reason you are unable to clear the Pop Up Dumpster Bag in time for collections, we will have to charge a missed collection fee if the driver arrives at the location and is unable to collect the bag. 

We are happy to help with that! Please give us a call at 877-224-4285. Please know, that cancellations that are made less than 24hrs before the pickup can incur a fee of $50. 

Our main collection process involves a truck with a knuckle boom crane on it. Essentially, that means a truck with a long arm that extends out to reach over and grab the bag.

While we wish we could be at every collection with our boom truck, we sometimes have to invite subcontractors with their trucks for collections. These subcontractors are trained, meet our customer service requirements, and uphold our standards. They are local junk removal companies that specialize in cleaning up junk and debris. They are just part of our extended family!

Pop Up Dumpster Bags are only picked up with our trained professionals. We provide a service that is unmatched for care for your property and belongings. As a local company with a national reach, we try to maintain the standards we have set for ourselves for all those who use our services. 

You do not need to be home for your collection. The Pop Up Dumpster Bag guidelines must be followed in order to properly collect your bag. If there are any issues with the placement of the bag or debris type, please know that we will reach out to you with any problems.

Please go to Schedule A Collection and select a date that works best for you. Pop Up Dumpster Bag reserves a 5-day window for your collection. This range of days is an approximate window to accommodate the driver's schedule as well as weather that may be tough to work in. We operate Monday through Friday 9 AM to 5 PM EST. 

A missed collection fee is added to your collection fee when there is an issue with picking up your collection. At the time of the arrival of the truck for example there should be nothing blocking the truck from getting the bag or weather impairments such as too much snow blocking the Pop Up Dumpster Bag. If there is a reason the driver must return when the bag is accessible, this fee will be added to your collection total.

Once you have opened your bag and placed it in an area based on the placement location of your Pop Up Dumpster Bag please follow these guidelines for filling:

  • Begin by starting to place heavier items in each corner. This will help the bag stay evenly distributed for weight. It will also help the bag stay upright for filling.
  • As you fill the bag up, continue to adjust the bag to maximize the available volume. This means adjusting the sides and making sure they are not pinched or folded over.
  • As you know, the scheduled collection means that there has been a debris type determined that you will be filling the bag with. Please keep in mind that the construction material and heavy materials should only be filled until the marked 10" inside of the bag with a black dotted line.
  • Once you are finished filling the bag please take a look at the blue strap handles. These handles must be able to touch so the bag can be successfully picked up. Use a rope or zip tie to hold the handles together.

On our main menu through our homepage, you will find the "schedule collection" button where you will be able to schedule a date for the collection of your Pop Up Dumpster Bag. 

  • The pop up dumpster bag can take up to 5 days to be collected.
