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.
