Working at an apartment complex you almost always have eyes on you, so I’ll soak up a rag, cover up the filter, then bag it for a hose cleaning back home.The filter gets banged out on a tree or fence post somewhere out of the way.
I shake my filter into a bag (done outside), then dump my vac debris into that bag before taking it to the shop's dumpster with the other scraps.Had a subcontractor remove old old carpet and pad over concrete, then shop vac. This is what I found in the dumpster.
How do you guys empty your shop vac ?
Put the filter inside of a garbage bag so that what you shake out stays in the bag, then bang it repeatedly on the driveway, all the while loudly yelling: Bad kitty, Bad kitty!I use vacuum bags. Gotta be careful to not rip a full bag while removing it but other than that it just gets tossed in the dumpster when I’m done. The filter gets banged out on a tree or fence post somewhere out of the way.
I’ll give that another try, but it’s a tight fit having both.I do use a bag and a filter at the same time. Using a bag keeps the filter from clogging

Call me stupid, anal, whatever, but the whole idea of using shop vac. And filters Is containment and shaking the filters or dumping the contents into a dumpster is imho no longer contained and undermines the whole process ….. Then again, they say the solution to pollution is delusion ?
We are sucking up some nasty stuff, why not figure out a different way to minimize exposure to people and pets along the way.

My sub. Just did that, but like they say, don’t sweat the small stuff and it’s all small stuff…….I’m trying Ringo I’m trying really hard to be the ShepardSince we’re talking about shop vacs, don’t you hate it when someone sucks up a bunch of crap and fills up your shop vac
