How Do I Pick a Dumpster Size?

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.

The most common sizes are between 10 and 40 cubic yards. There are also dumpsters that are 15, 20, and 30 cubic yards in size. They come in different sizes and, if rented from the right company, can be much easier to use than other ways to get rid of trash.

Use the guide below to get an idea of how big the dumpster we send you will be:

Size 10 to 15 Dumpsters: This dumpster is perfect for small projects like remodeling a small room. Many businesses and people like this size because it works well for most things.

Medium Size 20 Dumpsters: You should be able to fill up about seven pick-up trucks. They're anywhere from 18 to 22 feet long, 8 feet wide, and 4 feet deep.

Customer Reviews

Large 30- to 40-Cubic Yard Dumpsters: These big dumpsters, which some people call "mega dumpsters," are great for construction and demolition projects that are more complicated. These can handle larger pieces of trash. The 30-cubic-yard size will be perfect for remodeling several rooms.

No matter what you need to do, we have the right dumpster for you. Before we can give you the estimated price of rental, contact our friendly staff first. Before you choose a dumpster size, you should definitely give us a call so we can talk about your needs. Remember that the details of your project will dictate the right size for you. The size of the dumpster you need for the job will depend on the size of your home, the type of remodeling project, and the weight of the trash.

Contact us to find out about the different sizes of dumpster containers, how prices are set, etc. The wrong decisions can have unwanted costly outcomes such as overcharges or lack of enough space for your junk. We want you to ask the right questions when you call our number. For example, the most weight the dumpster can hold should be important, especially if you want to get rid of heavy things. Second, you need to know what kinds of trash the company that rents out the containers will take. Batteries, mercury, lead, gasoline, paint thinners, and other dangerous things are not allowed at the landfill. If you make the wrong choices, you could end up paying more than you should or not having enough room for your junk.

How much do dumpsters cost to rent?

Call our number and we'll give you a full breakdown of the costs based on the type of project, the amount of debris or trash, the size of the dumpster, the cost of the landfill, and any other fees required by law. We rent out containers for both business and home cleaning projects, and we always do our best to make sure our customers are happy.

We also need to know what kind of trash or junk you have at your home or business. You will also be asked what kind of trash you have on your property. This lets us know if you need one of our heavy-duty dumpsters, especially if you're throwing away concrete or bricks. Before we can get to the final number, we have to figure out all of these parts.

Prices for dumpsters depend on the type of dumpster:

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

The price will also depend on what kind of trash you put in our roll-off container. These things are:

Permissions and paperwork for your roll-off container

You should check with the city office in Ithaca to make sure you are not breaking the law. The city says that you need a permit from the Department of Public Works before you can block a public right-of-way with a dumpster, barricade, piece of material, scaffolding, or any other piece of equipment. In the end, this is a question about who owns what: the public or the private. If the dumpster ends up in your front yard, backyard, or driveway, you don't need a permit from the city office. Now, if the dumpster ends up on the curb, sidewalk, or street because there's nowhere else to put it on your property, you'll need to get paperwork from the city. Before you rent a dumpster, you should talk to your HOA or property management company in detail about this to make sure you won't get into any trouble. All of these are ways to keep from getting a fine.


We'd love to work with you.
