A dumpster is an ideal disposal solution for residential demolition. However, although it is quick and convenient, choosing the right dumpster size can be tricky. If you get a dumpster that's too small, you'll be stuck with extra debris. If you get a dumpster that's too big, it can drive up disposal costs. We’ll help you find that sweet spot.
Dumpsters come in a wide range of sizes, ranging from around 3 cubic yards to 50 cubic yards. Roll-off dumpsters and trailers are an excellent means for disposing of roof shingle debris. This short guide will help you choose the right dumpster size based on the size of your roofing project.
A 10 yard dumpster is a popular choice for small to medium size cleanups. It is a useful choice for a wide range of projects, such as remodeling, basement cleanouts, spring cleaning, roofing, and more.
For small cleanups—such as remodeling jobs, attic cleanouts, spring cleaning, and small deck or patio demo—small dumpsters less than 10 cubic yards offer the perfect balance between affordability and convenience.
A small dumpster is a popular choice for residential cleanups, including spring cleaning, construction debris, single-layer roof tear offs, and during a move-in/move-out. 10 yard roll-off dumpsters are versatile and compact bins designed to fit nicely in a standard driveway. Some are constructed with shorter sides for easier side-loading of heavy debris, such as concrete or dirt.
10 yard dumpsters are capable of holding 10 cubic yards of material or debris. That’s equivalent to roughly 3 to 5 pickup truck loads of waste. It’s a good choice for various situations, like small home cleanouts, roofing tear-offs and renovation projects.
