The only time I have been a mess afterward is when I change the filter.

SO has a bagless canister and is pleased with it. Emptying the canister isn't messy but you should empty it into a plastic grocery bag or similar and trash it outside. Just emptying it into the wastebasket in the kitchen (for example) gives you a cloud of dust every time you throw more trash away.

Perhaps I could empty it over the fence to the neighbor. Saving the environment/plastic bags

I'll second both of those. It grosses me out too.

Tell your neighbor it is compost for her garden.

Roomba also makes a pet-specific version, the 564 I think.

We've been looking at one of those, too. With two dogs, it's hard to keep up with the pet hair at times.

The really OLD vacs had a reusable cloth bag or cup.

Ah yes. I remember them. The old Hoover upright. The bag was hooked on with springs. And you definitely took it outside to empty. Just don't empty it on a windy day.
