What Size Dumpster Do I Need?
Learn How to Choose the Right Size Dumpster
Whether you need a dumpster for your home, work site or place of business, choosing the right size dumpster is important. Dumpsters.com has plenty of dumpster sizes available for temporary and permanent services and a helpful staff that can help you choose the right one for the job.
Choosing a Dumpster Size is Based on Three Main Factors:
- Type of Service
If you’re looking for a one-time rental for a large amount of debris, then you'll need a larger, roll off container. Common sizes are 10, 20, 30, and 40 yards. If you'll need on-going service for regular trash removal for your business or organization then you'll most likely be using a 2, 4, 6, or 8 yard front load dumpster.

- Type of Debris
The type of debris being disposed is the most common consideration when choosing a size. The larger the amount and size of material being disposed of, the larger the container will need to be to hold that material.
- Weight of Debris
One of the most overlooked factors when choosing a roll off dumpster size is the weight of materials. Smaller dumpers often come with lower weight limits. If the debris being disposed of contains heavy materials, you may need a larger size - even if it won’t be filling the entire volume of the container.
