How large of a commercial trash container should I get?
Your commercial garbage company may offer a range of bin sizes, and below you’ll find examples of the most commonly available capacities (exact dimensions can vary):
- 2 cubic yard box – 3 ft. L x 6 ft. W x 3 ft. H
- 3 cubic yard box -- 4 ft. L x 6 ft. W x 4 ft. H
- 4 cubic yard box -- 4 ft. L x 6 ft. W x 5 ft. H
- 6 cubic yard box -- 5 ft. L x 6 ft. W x 5 ft. H
- 8 cubic yard box – 5.5 ft. L x 6 ft. W x 6.5 ft. H
The trash dumpster may have an angled opening or a flat top depending upon what’s in stock. Some garbage haulers offer both options. Make sure to measure your dumpster bay to ensure the new container will fit inside.
Commercial recycling is mandatory in many cities/states
Since the recycling boom of the late 1990s, recycling rates have leveled off and remained stagnant for the past decade. Access to commercial recycling is better than ever before, but business recycling just hasn’t caught on as much as the environmentalists out there would have hoped it would. Cost and convenience are two factors why.
Because it hasn’t caught on naturally, many states and municipalities have made commercial recycling mandatory. California is one such state, which enacted mandatory recycling laws back in 2006. Businesses can often receive tax incentives that help offset the cost of recycling – talk to your waste hauler about these options.
Businesses can also earn points toward LEED certification by recycling and diverting waste from landfills.
