    Needed a dumpster for my kitchen renovation. Called on a Tuesday had it delivered Thursday. Filled it in 2 days, called Monday, it was gone Tuesday morning. I would say you can't beat that kind of service.

    • Suzanne Vickory

    Dumpster.com staff were friendly and efficient. Delivery and pick up were prompt. We had two dumpsters delivered. The first was in very poor condition and probably frightened the neighbors. But it got the job done. The second appeared to be brand new and was great advertising for the company’s green Program, which I appreciate. Thank you.

    The dumper was there when I got home and it was in the right place. Like that I wasn't charged any more money because they couldn't get here on the pick up date.

    I contacted Rodger about a dumpster to clean out my basement . He was very helpful in helping me determine the right size and informing me as to what should not be put in it and what was a extra charge. The driver was very professional and careful as to where he placed the dumpster. You are the best will recommend you to others

What Size Dumpster Do I Need?

Find Out How to Choose the Right Dumpster Size

Whether you need a dumpster for your home, work site or business, it’s important to select the right size. Overloading your container can result in additional charges to your bill. To keep your budget on track, Dumpsters.com has a wide range of dumpster sizes available for both temporary and permanent services.

Call us today at 844-444-DUMP to find the right size dumpster for your specific needs. Our friendly staff will help you choose the best one for the job. 

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. 

Visit our compare services page to learn more.

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.
