Tips for Choosing the Right Size Dumpster for Your Needs

If you are in the middle of a project or planning to start a project soon, then you will at one point need to sit down and evaluate your dumpster rental needs and the size of the dumpster you need. While it may seem pretty cut and dry, it is not and you may find yourself stumped when you are asked what size you need.

To help you out, we are going to go over the different sized roll-off container sizes and tips to help you decide which size will meet your needs best. Of course, if you have any additional questions or need help choosing the best size, we are ready to help you.

5-Yard Dumpster
A 5-yard dumpster is best used for smaller jobs that you may have around your home. For example, many of our clients choose this size when they want to clean out their garage for the winter or they want to de-clutter their shed. While the 5-yard dumpster is on the smaller size, it is not too small and does provide you with enough room for a variety of jobs to include small bathroom and kitchen remodels or renovations.

10-Yard Dumpster
A 10-yard dumpster is probably the size you will need for the job that you plan to do. This is one of the most commonly rented sizes and it fits the needs of many different people including contractors. This dumpster holds a lot of trash and items that you want to dispose of. This dumpster is best for small home cleanout, roof removal, dirt removal, and even driveway and sidewalk rip ups.

15-Yard Dumpster
A 15-yard dumpster is a hefty option, but is ideal for homeowners who want to perform a complete kitchen or bathroom remodel of a medium to medium large sized space. To help put this dumpster into perspective for you, it is about 12 feet long and 5 feet tall. This dumpster will likely take up a good portion of your driveway and is best for homeowners who do not want to worry about having to empty the dumpster half way through their project.

20-Yard Dumpster
A 20-yard dumpster is a wonderful choice for those who have a large job to tackle. It is unlikely that you will need a dumpster this big unless you plan to completely redo the flooring in your large home or you need to replace the roof on a 3,000-square foot house. This dumpster holds a lot of items and is ideal for contractors who plan to remodel bathrooms and kitchens that are large in size.
