When deciding on a roll off dumpster size, it’s critical to accurately estimate the amount of debris and scrap material you’ll be discarding.
The last thing you want is to overflow the dumpster or be in a situation that will take multiple trips to the landfill.
For construction projects, we always recommend ordering one size larger than what you estimate.
This way, you reduce the risk of exceeding the maximum holding capacity of the container.
Now that we’ve explained some do’s and don'ts of sizing, let’s look at some of the trash dumpster options we carry.
10 Yard Dumpster
Ten yard dumpsters are capable of holding ten cubic yards of waste material. This is equivalent to approximately four truck bed loads of debris.
We recommend a ten yard dumpster for small businesses or residential cleaning projects. These may include things like a garage or attic cleaning, home construction projects, or small demolition projects around the house.
15 yard dumpster
A fifteen yard dumpster can hold fifteen cubic yards of waste. Equivalent to approximately 6 pick up bed loads of debris, this trash container option is versatile and can be used for both residential and commercial projects.
Home projects that may require a trash bin of this size would include things like a kitchen or bathroom remodel, landscaping projects around the home, or a garage cleaning.
20 Yard Dumpster
A twenty yard dumpster can hold 20 cubic feet of debris. This type is usually required for larger demolitions or home construction projects. It can also be used for small or medium commercial and construction purposes.
A dumpster of this size would be used for projects like roof repair, window replacement, basement remodeling, or any other larger residential home remodel.
30 Yard Dumpster
A 30 yard dumpster can hold the equivalent of approximately ten truck bed loads of debris. This container is perfect for large scale home renovation or commercial projects like small job construction sites, exterior home remodeling, etc.
40 Yard Dumpster
A 40 yard dumpster can hold forty cubic feet of debris which is roughly 20 pick up truck bed loads of debris. These are generally used for large demolition and construction projects. This is our biggest dumpster we carry and is therefore reserved for the biggest cleanup projects.
