Dumpster Rental Tips

20 Yard Dumpster Sub Tip 4

Types of 20 Yard Dumpsters

Open-top roll-off dumpsters: This is the most common type of 20 yard dumpster. Most feature a door that swings open for easy loading, making it easy to load bulky or heavy items, like furniture, appliances, concrete, or demolition debris.

Dumpster trailers: Some dumpster rental providers have specially-designed trailers for loads of 20 cubic yards or less. When a roll-off dumpster isn’t a viable option, like if the ground is soft or uneven, a dumpster trailer is a more suitable solution.

20 Yard Dumpster Capacities

Most 20 yard roll-offs are big enough and strong enough to hold as much 10+ tons of debris, but dumpster rental companies almost never allow this.

There are 3 main reasons for weight limits:

  1. The lifting and hauling capacity of the truck cannot accommodate that much weight.

  2. Truck hauling weight limit restrictions (varies by city/county)

  3. Landfill cost per ton — Dumpster rental companies are charged a per-ton rate at the landfill. Dumpster rental costs would be much higher if there were no customer weight limits.

The average 20 yard dumpster weight limit is 3 - 4 tons, or 6,000 - 8,000 lbs.

Dumpster container sizing information

Roll-off dumpster sizes vary by rental provider, but here are the most common:

  • 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 availability. If you can’t find the container size you’re looking for, check with a different rental company near you.

Other relatively common dumpster sizes include 8, 12 and 15 yarders. Still other container sizes are also sometimes available. Trailer dumpsters are a roll-off dumpster alternative that work great for a wide range of situations.


The Ohio EPA encourages composting

At least a 25% of the waste landfilled in the U.S. is compostable. This includes yard debris, food waste and paper products. Composting is good for the environment and saves you money in two ways:

  • You don’t have to buy fertilizer. You’re making your own 100% organic fertilizer for the garden, flower beds, indoor plantings, or to add to topsoil.
  • Composting reduces the amount of waste you generate, which may allow you to downsize your curbside garbage container needs and save you a few bucks on your waste hauling bill.

It’s easy to compost at home, and no, it doesn’t smell like rotting garbage if you do it right. It’s a matter of mixing “brown” materials like twigs, dead leaves and clean paper with “green” materials like coffee grounds/filters, fruit/veggie scraps, nut shells and egg shells (no whole eggs).

Mix in a higher ratio of brown materials to avoid a stinky batch of compost. Mix weekly and keep moist with water. That’s all it takes to start reaping the benefits of compost.
