When Determining How Big of a Dumpster You’ll Need Consider These Three Factors:

1. Type of Service
If you’re looking for a one-time rental for a large amount of debris, then you'll need a roll off container. Common sizes are 10, 20, 30, and 40 cubic yards. 

If you need on-going dumpster rental services for your business or organization, then you'll be choosing from a 2, 4, 6, or 8 cubic yard front load dumpster.

2. Type of Debris 
The sort of waste being thrown out is the most important consideration when choosing a size. The larger the amount and size of the material, the larger the container you’ll need to be to hold that material. We have dumpsters for all types of debris including:

3. Weight of Debris
One of the most overlooked factors when choosing a roll off dumpster size is the weight of your materials. 

Smaller dumpers come with lower weight limits. If your debris contains heavy materials like brick or concrete, you may need a larger size with a higher weight limit - even if you don’t completely fill the container.

Use our dumpster weight calculator to estimate the weight of your debris.
