Dumpsters for Construction Debris
Common Construction Dumpster Sizes
The most common construction dumpster sizes
are 10 yard, 20 yard, 30 yard, and 40 yard containers. Sizes and availability vary by company, so check with a couple of different companies to get the size you need.
Some rental providers specialize in compact dumpsters designed specifically for residential use (e.g., home renovations, remodeling projects, small cleanouts, and other small home projects).
Ideal Construction Dumpster Size
Depending on the size and scope of your project, a 10 yard dumpster
may be plenty; while other situations may call for a 40 yard dumpster
When clean-loading heavy, high-density debris, like shingles or concrete, smaller containers, like 10 or 20 yarders are generally used. Many rental companies will require the use of smaller containers for heavy materials for the sake of keeping weight at a level that can still be physically hauled away by the dumpster truck.
The dumpster rental providers you speak to will be able to help you choose the best dumpster size for your project needs.
