What I would recommend when dumping and completely changing out litter is to 
use a plastic pitcher and scoop the litter out into another container, clean 
the box and then scoop it back and add fresh.  Also, if I am working on 
something that requires me to be bent over for a period of time, I use the: 2 
in 1 Large Steel-Framed 
Folding Garden Kneeler/Seat with Thick Foam Pad  
  You can purchase it from amazon or from Home Depot or Lowes and it's great 
for kneeling on when painting baseboard because the legs act as a handle with 
which to push yourself back up OR you can sit on it while cleaning and/or 
scooping litterboxes.  It is very lightweight and you can drag it around to the 
different boxes :)
