The sizes range from 10 to 40 cubic yards, as well as all the sizes in between. The price of a dumpster rental depends on how big it is and how much it can hold. To choose the right size dumpster, you need to know how much trash you need to put in it. Larger projects make more trash, so you should choose the right size dumpster so you don't have to pay extra fees for going over the weight limit.
Some people can easily guess how much trash they need to throw away or what size bin they need, while others have no idea. We know that some people find it hard to figure out what size dumpster they need, so we've put together everything you need to know about hiring a container rental company.
We put them in order from the shortest, which is about four feet tall, to the tallest, which is about eight feet tall, so that the information is easy to understand.
Size 10: You can use the Size 10 dumpster if you need to clean up a small area or remodel a few rooms in your home. It can hold things like the roofs of small houses and waste from a landscaping project that will break down over time.
Size 20: Choose the Size 20 trash bin if you need to get rid of worn things from a larger property. A 20-cubic yard roll-off container would be needed for projects like remodeling a bigger house or kitchen, taking off roof shingles, or getting rid of old carpet. You would need this size dumpster if you were doing a lot of home carpentry, cleaning out a big basement or attic that's full to the brim, or cleaning out a very large garage.
30-Cubic Yard: Building a new house, adding on to your current home, tearing down a big deck, or building a new pool are all home projects that will make a lot of trash and debris. You need a container that's about the right size to hold them all. The metal dumpsters that hold 30 cubic yards are about 22 feet long and 8 feet wide. It also goes down six feet.
40 cubic yards: This is the biggest size that can be made. We rent out this kind of dumpster for a lot of business projects. For bigger jobs, they can make more than one trip to the dump. It can hold heavy things like hardened cement bags, thick carpet or insulation for floors, metal frames, and tiles. This type of container is usually 22 feet long and 8 feet wide.
