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.
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.
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.
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 obvious answer is that the size of the dumpster depends on how big your home or business project is. You don't have to worry about this, though, because we can help you choose the right type or size after you tell us about the project you're working on and the kind of trash you're getting rid of. When you choose a yarder that fits your needs, you can save a lot of money. Before you decide to rent a container, it's best to talk to us first. This is so you don't rent a dumpster that is bigger than you need. How do you know what size to buy?
There are 10 cubic yard dumpsters, 20 cubic yard dumpsters, 30 cubic yard dumpsters, and 40 cubic yard dumpsters, among other sizes. As it is, there is a perfect dumpster for every project, so keep this in mind when deciding what to rent.
One-Room Remodel: For a one-room remodel, you probably won't need more than a 20-cubic yarder. This is because a 20-cubic yarder can already hold 6 truckloads, which is supposed to be enough for a regular-sized room. If it's a larger area, like the kitchen, and you need to get rid of cabinets and kitchen appliances, a 30-cubic yarder will be better.
Upgrading Several Rooms, Removing Floors: You can choose between a 20-yard or 30-yard metal dumpster for general construction or renovating and remodeling more than one room. Our staff can help you figure out what size is best for you.
One Storage Area Cleanup: A 10- or 15-cubic yard container is all you need to clean up a small space. Some people will have a garage sale instead of throwing away furniture or large appliances. That's a good way to make some extra cash on the side.
Demolition of Decks or House Cleanup: If you are doing a big renovation on your house, rent a 20-cubic yard dumpster. These containers for the yard are big enough to store your furniture and more.
Landscaping or gardening: If you need to get rid of big things, though, a 30-cubic yarder will do the trick.
Construction and Demolition: Once we get your call, our 30- to 40-cubic-yard containers can be wheeled onto your property as soon as possible.
So there you go. The metal dumpsters usually come in these sizes. Get in touch with us, and we'll make sure you have the right-sized container. We can sit down and talk about the size and scope of your project, as well as how much and what kind of trash you expect to get rid of. This will help us figure out what size dumpster you need.
