Most common roll-off container sizes
Roll-off dumpster sizes vary, but here are the most widely available:
- 10 yard: 12 ft. x 8 ft. x 3.5 ft. (LxWxH)
- 20 yard: 22 ft. x 8 ft. x 4 ft. (LxWxH)
- 30 yard: 22 ft. x 8 ft. x 6 ft. (LxWxH)
- 40 yard: 22 ft. x 8 ft. x 8 ft. (LxWxH)
The container sizes in your area may vary based on what the dumpster rental company carries, as well as the availability of specific containers. Check with several rental providers if you can’t find the container size your project needs.
Other relatively common container sizes include 8, 12 and 15 yarders. Other container sizes are also sometimes available. Trailer dumpsters are a roll-off dumpster alternative that work great for a wide range of situations.
Where is the waste sent?
Not all waste can be, or is, recycled. Much of the non-recycled waste in Hawaii is sent to the Covanta H-Power WTE plant in HI on Oahu, which is a waste-to-energy plant that burns the waste to create electricity – up to 8% of Oahu’s electricity usage.
There are also several other landfills in Hawaii that accept waste, and some waste is shipped away to landfills on the mainland.
Landfilling and shipping waste is expensive, topping $100 per ton in some cases. With the cost of recycling operations dropping just about every year, it’s becoming much more cost effective to recycle rather than landfill, not to mention the environmental benefits of recycling.
