    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.

    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?

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:

  1. 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. Visit our compare services page to find out more.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Size Options for Temporary Service

Dumpsters.com offers a variety of dumpster sizes to homeowners and contractors for all types of junk removal and debris cleanup jobs. No matter how big or small your project is, there’s 10, 15, 20, 30 and 40 yard dumpsters to accommodate your needs. From small attic, basement and other household cleanouts to room remodels, renovations and big landscaping projects, choose the right dumpster that’s right for you.

Size Options for Permanent Service

Dumpsters.com offers a variety of dumpster sizes for commercial customers who require ongoing trash collection services. No matter what industry you’re in, there’s 2, 4, 6, and 8 yard dumpsters that will help ensure a clean environment for your workplace.  

Whether you need a 2, 4, 6 or 8 yard dumpster is dependent on the needs of your business. Our permanent dumpsters are generally used for the disposal of paper and plastics, cardboard, food waste and light metals. The type of material your business or institution goes through, as well as the amount, will help us better determine which size dumpster you need.
