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.

We have five different sizes of roll off containers, with a 10-yarder being the smallest and a 40-yarder being the largest. You can use any of these for your home or business project in Selma and the nearby areas. 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.

Think of the beds of three pick-up trucks to get a better idea of how much a 10-cubic yard dumpster can hold. If you chose a dumpster that was too big for how much trash you had, it would be a terrible waste of space. If you choose a small 10-yard dumpster for a job that ends up being 20 yards, you will have to make several trips to the dump. You'll save more money and have less trouble if you choose the right size dumpster for your trash needs.

This size is usually big enough to hold a single roof shingle or floor tile from a kitchen remodeling project. If you're going to work on a bigger project and think you'll have about 6 pick-up truckloads of trash, a 20-yard dumpster is a safer choice. For a whole-house remodel, a demolition, or a business project, we recommend the 40-yard dumpster, which is the biggest one we have.

We must stress, though, that each roll-off container has a maximum amount of trash it can hold. We have to estimate the weight of the trash or debris by looking at it or hearing what you have to say when you call us. Before we can even start to make a suggestion, we need to know what kind of home or business project you are starting and what kind of debris or trash you expect to make. Call our experts and let them give you exact numbers.

How much will it cost to rent a dumpster?

Renting a dumpster to get rid of trash from your home or business can save you a lot of time and money, and it can also make your life easier. In order to make plans, you will need to know how much you will have to pay to rent containers. We have the best prices, so you can be sure that our packages are affordable when you hire us.

Here are the different kinds of dumpsters and how they affect the price of renting a roll off container.

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

Concrete and bricks cost more to throw away because they are heavy and need more fuel to move around. The cost goes up with the weight of the trash, which makes sense since more fuel will be used to move the items.

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

Customer Reviews

Large containers will obviously cost more to rent, but there are other things besides size that affect dumpster prices, such as the number of containers available and the length of the rental. The people who work for us can't wait to help you. You could say that the extra 10 cubic yards are wasted space. Worst of all, you have to pay for that space. Call us if you want to use our service to rent roll-off containers.

Getting the Documents You Need to Rent a Dumpster

You can talk to the city of Selma about how to get a permit and when you will get it. There are rules about how to rent containers, which is too bad. Even our business had to get licenses before we could start running. You should stay away from those two. 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.

Keep in mind, though, that if you park a dumpster you rented on public property, you will need a permit from the local government. Be ready and get a permit ahead of time to make sure your project doesn't get messed up. This is important because if you leave the dumpster on the street for a long time, you will be blocking traffic.

No longer will you need a city permit to put a rented dumpster in your own driveway. Also, if you are building something new or remodeling, check your permits to see if you already have a permit to rent a container without even knowing it.


We'd love to work with you.
