Choosing the Right Dumpster Rental Size

Choosing the Right Dumpster Rental Size

For some, deciding on which size dumpster to rent may seem very challenging. Many factors can go into deciding what size is best for you. These factors depend on the type of debris that is being collected, the amount of debris, and the price of the dumpster. Rental dumpsters come in many different sizes, the smallest size is 5 yards and the largest can come up 40 yards. Many times people will underestimate or overestimate the amount of waste that they will produce during a project. Another aspect that people usually overlook is the overall weight of all the materials. 

Everything You Need to Know When Comparing Dumpster Sizes

The total volume of the dumpster calculates how much the dumpster can hold inside, and this is measured in cubic yards.  Dumpsters are typically delivered to a small driveway or alleyway to be parked. It is very important to make sure that there is enough open space for the dumpster to stay and approximately 4 additional feet for the dumpster door to swing open. A 10 cubic yard dumpster is typically used for short-term, small-scale home projects. Some examples include garage cleanouts, yard waste, junk removal, bathroom remodels, and more. A 40 cubic yard dumpster is ideal for large residential projects, commercial cleanups, and industrial applications. Choosing a dumpster that’s too small can be an expensive mistake because you would have to rent another dumpster. A dumpster rental service cannot legally haul your debris on the road if the container is filled too high. If your dumpster is filled too high or is over the maximum weight, you will have to remove the excess yourself.
