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.
There are different sizes of metal roll-off dumpsters. The size of the roll off rental must be just right for the amount of trash you expect to have. If you rent a container that is much bigger than what you need, it will cost you more than it needs to.
First, you should know that dumpsters are usually 10 cubic yards, 20 cubic yards, 30 cubic yards, or 40 cubic yards. Sizes in between aren't very common. Consider the following load requirements, which are typical for most home improvement projects, to help you decide what size dumpster 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.
Multiple-Room Remodeling: A 30-cubic-yard dumpster should be enough for a project that involves remodeling more than one room. Also, you should always think about how much trash you will make with each room you remodel. Just remember that the size of the dumpster will be bigger the more trash there is.
Clearing out the attic or basement: Storage spaces don't take up much room. You can rent either a 10-cubic yard or a 15-cubic yard metal roll off if you are remodeling your attic, basement, or garage. But if you also need to get rid of big appliances, choose a bigger size, like a 20-cubic yarder.
Whole House Cleanup: Are you remodeling your whole house? Then, if you have a lot of stuff, you should get a 20-cubic-yard dumpster, unless you live in a mansion, in which case you should get a bigger dumpster.
Landscaping: You should be fine with a heavy-duty container that is 10 to 15 cubic yards. If you are taking down your patio, you should get a bigger dumpster.
Construction and Demolition: If you are working on a construction project, choose between a 30-cubic or a 40-cubic dumpster. If you are storing bricks, a smaller dumpster will do.

You might be glad to hear that the cost of a dumpster is not that high. But there are many things that can make the price of a dumpster go up. These include the size of the dumpster, what it will be used for, and in some cases, even landfill fees.
Here are some of the most common types of dumpsters and how much they cost:
Take a look at some of the most common ways people use dumpsters, which can also affect the price:
As it is, the price won't be the same for everyone, so if you want specifics, tell us about your project, how big or small it is, what you plan to throw away, or where you plan to put the yarder. Just give us a call, and we will figure out what you need.
You may or may not need a permit to rent a roll off dumpster, but it's always a good idea to have the right paperwork on hand, especially if it's for something big. Check with the city office in your area to see if you need a permit to rent a metal dumpster. Most of the time, you don't need to ask permission from the council to park the container on your own land. But if you want to be sure, you should talk to your homeowners association.
Also, don't forget that your homeowners association may have rules of its own. If you want to be sure, call the city office in North Las Vegas. You should also know that just because you applied for a permit doesn't mean you'll get it. This is especially true if the dumpster you want to rent will take up a lot of the street and slow down traffic. From what we've seen, local city states require homeowners and businesses that want to put a dumpster on the street or sidewalk to get a permit. You should also talk to your HOA or a local rental company to make sure you understand all the rules.
Still, please don't be afraid to call us if you have any other questions or if you're ready to get started.
