I recently tried posting pictures and it didn't work for me. If someone could help me understand how to post pictures, I'll post some pictures here to help you out.

I'm suggesting the 48 gallon Tough Guy square receptacle from Grainger, product #5DMV5. It sells for around $52. Shipping is free if your order is large enough, which I believe it will be.

It appears that I can't upload pictures because of a "security token missing", whatever that is. I'll try posting pictures from another computer tomorrow and see how it works.

Log off of Lawnsite. Clear your browser's cache and cookies. If you have more than 1 browser on your computer (ie: Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.) then make sure you do this on all browsers. Restart your computer. Log onto Lawnsite again. If that doesn't fix it then notify the administrators. It is a Lawnsite issue at that point, not an issue with your computer.

Looking at this from a homeowner's point of view, I wouldn't see the value in spending thirty some dollars on something that requires me to also buy an expensive trash can (and bags, I presume) to use it with instead of what I already have on hand.

Granted, not all homeowners are as "frugal" as I am, but still.

I will try it out and see how it goes. Thanks.

I understand. Each of us places value in different things. There is a time saving component and an ease of use component from the use of the products that each of us will weigh against their added costs. If the tradeoff is favorable for time efficiency and saved effort, they will purchase the products, and if it isn't favorable, they won't. As they say, "Time is money", and everyone places a value on their time, some more than others.

Great idea. Here's a link to a Youtube video I forgot I had out there. Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1v-nRfEr80

Hope it helps.
