In 2015, Gorilla Dumpster Bag won "The Idea Challenge" from the Eau Claire Economic Development Corporation in 2015. The prize from the contest was $5,000 toward business expenses.
Now Gorilla Dumpster Bag recently began doing business in the Stillwater area.
The Gorilla Dumpster Bag is a giant orange bag measuring 8 feet long by 5 feet wide, and it’s 3.5 feet tall. The company says it can hold more than two tons and won’t damage driveways or other surfaces. It’s set up in a heavy-duty stand called "The Gorilla Cage."
The bag is delivered to customers’ homes or job sites and is later picked up by a crane truck.
Designed and engineered in the St. Croix Valley, the bag took more than two years to develop.
