We know that many of our clients, especially homeowners, have a hard time choosing the right dumpster size. Often we’d get a call from a homeowner who wants to start basement spring cleaning but isn’t sure what size dumpster will be right for them. While the common-sense approach would be to hire a large dumpster so that you don’t run out of space, many homes can’t accommodate a 30-yard dumpster. Also, these larger dumpsters are unnecessary and expensive for most projects.
On the other hand, if a contractor is working on a large roofing project or building a home, a larger dumpster will make more sense. It will usually depend on how much waste they are expecting to discard.
Our team has years of experience helping home, and business owners choose the right size roll-off dumpster for their needs. We will take variables like your location, the nature of work you’re undertaking and the type of debris you want to discard into consideration when recommending a dumpster size. In most cases, the sizes we recommend are best suited for the job.
Now for anyone renting a dumpster for the first time, we have a brief description of all the popular sizes below. The unit of measurement is cubic yards.

The 10-yard dumpster

Dimensions: 6-feet wide by 12-feet long by 4-feet tall

It is the smallest dumpster you can rent from us, which is perfect for most DIY projects. Whether it is a kitchen renovation, landscaping, or garage clean-up, the 10-yard dumpster will serve the purpose. It is also the lowest-priced dumpster in our line-up.

Our roll-off dumpsters are great for:

  • Small to medium size clean-up projects.
  • Medium-sized landscaping work.
  • You can use it to discard concrete, drywall and various other items.
  • It is also the best size for small and medium-size domestic remodeling projects.

The 20-yard dumpster

Dimensions: 8-feet in width by 20-feet long by 4-feet tall

Now, if our smallest dumpster does not offer enough space for what you need, the next size up is the 20-yard dumpster. It is twice the size and can hence accommodate more. The 20-yard dumpster is best suited for:

  • Discarding old furniture and other large pieces of debris.
  • Debris from roof modification and re-roofing projects.
  • It can easily accommodate the debris from medium-sized remodeling projects.

The 30-yard dumpster

Dimensions: 8-feet in width by 22-feet by 6-feet tall
It is the ideal choice for large-size projects. It is also best suited for debris generated from multiple smaller projects. Many contractors rely on our 30-yard dumpster for home construction projects or when they are undertaking major remodeling. The larger size ensures fewer debris hauls, consequently saving money.

40-yard dumpster

Dimensions: 8-feet by 22-feet by 8-feet tall
The 40-yard dumpster is the biggest one you’ll find and is ideally suited to commercial contractors. If you’re working on a large demolition or building project, you can’t go wrong with the spacious 40-yard dumpster. However, you need to have enough space on the site of your project to accommodate the dumpster.
