Commercial Waste Dumpsters
Sizes of Commercial Dumpsters
Commercial waste containers come in a variety of sizes to accommodate a wide range of waste generation needs.
For small businesses that do not generate a large amount of waste, a 4 yard dumpster or smaller is generally a safe bet.
For medium to large businesses that generate a lot of waste and material, a 6 yard dumpster or larger is recommended, and oftentimes, a commercial waste compactor is the best option.
Common Dumpster Sizes
2 yard: 6 ft L x 3 ft W x 3 ft H
4 yard: 6 ft L x 4 ft W x 5 ft H
6 yard: 6 ft L x 5 ft W x 6 ft H
Are there multiple types of commercial dumpsters?
Commercial waste containers come in two main types to accommodate companies' specific needs: front-loading dumpsters and commercial waste compactors.
Front-loading dumpsters are the most common type, commonly seen at gas stations, the back of restaurants, grocery stores, etc.
Commercial waste compactors are another popular option and are highly efficient, as they compact large quantities of waste materials. Not only does this reduce the amount of space your waste takes up, but it also minimizes the risk of pests and makes your property look clean and professional.
