Understanding Dumpster Size Requirements

10 Yard Dumpster


About four pick-up trucks' worth of trash can fit in a 10 yard roll-off container. They are often used for small projects like remodeling a bathroom or kitchen, cleaning out a garage or basement, replacing a small roof up to 1500 square feet, or taking down a small deck up to 500 square feet.

20 Yard Dumpster

About eight pick-up trucks' worth of trash can fit in a 20-yard roll-off container. They are often used to remove carpet or flooring from a large house, clean out a large garage or basement, replace a roof up to 3000 square feet, or take down a deck up to 400 square feet.

30 Yard Dumpster

About 12 pick-up trucks' worth of trash can fit in a 30 yard roll-off container. They are often used for big home additions, building a new house, tearing down a garage, replacing siding or windows on a small to medium-sized house, and so on.

40 Yard Dumpster

About 16 pick-up trucks' worth of trash can fit in a 40-yard roll-off container. They are often used for big projects like building or remodeling a big house, cleaning out a business, or replacing the siding or windows on a big house.

The sizes of these dumpsters are measured in cubic yards, which makes it easy to remember how much trash goes in each one. However, when choosing the right container size, you also need to think about the type of trash and the size of the area. Metal dumpsters come in standard sizes of 10, 15, 20, 30, and 40 cubic yards. All of those sizes should be enough to meet any need.

Customer Reviews

The 20-cubic yard dumpster is perfect if your trash will fill up about 6 truckloads. We can see why you're still not sure how to use the different sizes of metal containers. It's hard to imagine how much a 10-cubic-yard container can hold. This can be done with an eye test. Imagine a pick-up truck next to your trash pile and ask yourself, "How many of these trucks do I need?" The largest piece of equipment we have is a 40-yard dumpster. The 20-cubic-yard roll-off container will hold the same amount of trash as about six pick-up trucks. The 40-cubic-yard container, on the other hand, can hold as much as 16 full-size pick-up trucks.

The company that makes dumpsters sets a weight limit for all of them, from the most expensive to the least expensive. In general, a size 40 container can hold up to 16,000 pounds, while a size 10 container can only hold up to 6,000 pounds. If you try to put more than that in a size 10, it will break. If you have a big project that involves a lot of hauling and getting rid of heavy materials, then you should get the biggest dumpster. For example, heavy-duty dumpsters are made to handle the weight and abuse of things like concrete and bricks. Call us and we'll help you through the selection process and make sure you always pick the right size dumpster.

How much does it cost to rent a dumpster?

Renting a dumpster to get rid of trash at home or at work will save you a lot of trouble, that's for sure. There are other costs that have to be taken into account. For example, the cost will depend a lot on what's in the book. The price of a dumpster really depends on its type, size, location, availability, rental period, amount of trash, and even the city's waste disposal laws, as there may be extra fees for a certain type of trash. We also take into account the number of days the dumpster will be on your property, as well as the fees charged by the landfill and other local fees. These are the types of dumpsters that change the total cost:

  • Remodeling projects on building sites
  • projects on roofs
  • Landscape jobs
  • home cleanouts
  • any kind of trash removal

No matter what you put in the container, it will affect the price in some way. It makes sense, because heavier things will need more fuel to move. Also, you may have to pay extra if there are dangerous wastes. This is because it is expected that the costs of running the business will go up when heavier things are shipped. If the substance is dangerous, you may have to pay more. When sensitive items are involved, you may have to pay extra. Find out what you can throw away in the dumpster. Here are the things that can change how much the whole thing costs:

  • roof and shingles
  • dirt and yard waste 
  • concrete 
  • construction waste 
  • household trash

Customer Reviews

We can send a dumpster over right away if there is an emergency. There's no need to wait for a dumpster for days. If you want to rent a roll-off container from us, please let us know. From the start to the end, you'll get great customer service.

Getting the Documents You Need to Rent a Dumpster

Make sure to get in touch with the right office in Decatur and ask for more information about how to go about the process, how much a dumpster permit costs, and how long you have to wait for it to be approved. There are rules about how to rent containers, which is too bad. Even our business had to get licenses before we could start running. If you do this, you will still be able to use your driveway while your project is going on. Business owners may find it convenient to park their rented dumpster outside their private property so they don't have to use their own parking lot. If that happens, they have to put the dumpster on the street or sidewalk in front of their house. Work on this ahead of time so that you can keep going with your project on schedule.

If the dumpsters you rent are going to be put on your own property, you don't need a permit. But as a homeowner, you should be polite enough to tell your homeowners' association that you plan to keep the dumpsters you rented on your property until your project is done. Again, the best way to get all the answers is to go to your local city office.
