Good Luck!!
I like both of your suggestions, and I think approaching construction companies is a really good consideration. I am just trying to figure out how I can effectively reach out to them.

Regarding a round Slap-on, it is something that I may consider in the future, but the tooling is incredibly expensive and it will likely take a year or two to get the tooling designed and manufactured before I could start production of the product. That is just not something I can aford to do at this time, but there is a need for the product.

Thanks for getting back with me.

The problem with construction is they usually move the material with a trash can to a large 30 yd dumpster so they don't use a bag. I'd also try marketing towards housekeeping/janitorial companies and disaster response companies who go through a lot of bags in a day.
