Important Factors for Choosing a Container Size

Debris Type

Heavy debris like concrete and dirt require a small roll off for safe hauling, while bulky items like furniture may need a larger box.

Amount of Trash

The container’s volume is reflected in yards. Keep in mind one cubic yard is equal to 5-6 13-gallon trash bags.

Space Available

Measure your delivery spot to ensure you have the clearance needed for placement as well as the space to fit the bin's dimensions.

Have Questions About Which Size to Order?

Roll Off Dumpster Size FAQs

What size roll off do I need?

The container size you need depends on the material you are tossing, how much you're throwing out and the space available. Our team is happy to talk through your project to suggest the right size.

How high can I fill the roll off dumpster?

Due to road safety standards, all materials must fit below the dumpster’s fill line. If all the debris from your project won’t fit, consider ordering a size larger or ask our team about setting up empty-and-return service.

What sizes do roll off dumpsters come in?

Standard roll off container sizes are 10, 15, 20, 30 and 40 cubic yards. The dimensions may vary, but the volume is accurate. Additionally, some markets have non-traditional sizes like 12 and 50 yard bins.

What size roll off box fits in my driveway?

A standard roll off dumpster is 7.5 feet wide and 14-22 feet long. Drivers also need a 60-foot approach to the delivery spot, along with 23 feet of overhead clearance. If this doesn’t work for your driveway, street placement may be a possibility, but a permit may be required.

Available sizes may vary by location and debris type.
