We often have people who call us to hire the largest dumpster we have available so that they have enough space for when they need it. In reality, unless they are responsible for a large demolition project, the 30-yard dumpster will serve the purpose. Though the 40-yard dumpster is also an option, it may be too large for most homes, making them impossible to place on the property.
If this is your first time renting a roll-off dumpster, below is a short description of each size that will aid you in choosing the right one.
The 10-yard dumpster
Dimensions: 6-feet wide by 12-feet long by 4-feet tall
The 10-yard dumpster may be the smallest size dumpster available, but it is the best size for most DIY projects. Almost 80% of homeowners will find the size adequate for disposing of most household items.
You will want to choose the 10-yard dumpster to:
