Choosing the Best Dumpster for Your Project

Posted by Dan Nakhoul on Tue, Aug 18, 2015 @ 01:37 PM

We’ve posted similar blogs a couple times in the past but we feel it’s helpful to repost in order to aid our customers in choosing a dumpster right for their project.

Although it’s natural to go for the least expensive dumpster, it’s often not the most economical depending on what type of project you are undertaking.

For renovations and cleanouts especially, items tend to add up in both weight and volume more quickly than anticipated. Below is a guide that will help you choose a dumpster that is perfect for your project. 


10 Yard Dumpster

Our 10-yard dumpster dimensions are 12-feet long by 8-feet wide by 2.6-feet high. A 10-yard dumpster may be perfect for:

  • Single layer of roof shingles
  • Dirt
  • Brick
  • Concrete
  • Other Solids


15 Yard Dumpster

Our 15-yard dumpster dimensions are 13-feet long by 8-feet wide by 5-feet high. A 15-yard dumpster may be perfect for:

  • Mid-sized basement/attic cleanouts
  • Small garage cleanouts
  • Single layer of roof shingle removals
  • Flooring/carpet removals
  • Deck removals
  • Mid-sized Kitchen/bathroom remodeling projects


20 Yard Dumpster

Our 20-yard dumpster dimensions are 14-feet long by 8-feet wide by 6-feet high. A 20-yard dumpster may be perfect for:

  • Major home additions
  • Construction of a new home
  • Demolition of a garage/house
  • Window/sideing replacement of a small-to- medium sized house


25 Yard Dumpster

Our 25-yard dumpster dimensions are 16-feet long by 8-feet wide by 6-feet high. A 25- yard dumpster may be perfect for:

  • Commercial cleanouts
  • Commercial roof tear offs
  • New construction
  • Major additions
  • Large amount of trash/garbage


Every project is unique, but this should provide at least some guidance as to what size dumpster will be appropriate for the project on hand. Please do not hesitate to give us a call if you need further guidance. We are more than happy to walk you through any questions or concerns.
