Dumpster Yard Bin in Birmingham Alabama

Understanding dumpster sizes and specs are critical in determining the appropriate container size for the job at hand. Residential dumpsters usually are available in four sizes: 10, 20, 30, and 40 yards and it is not possible to fit 15 yards of debris inside a 10-yard container. 

Choosing the wrong dumpster size will cost more because a pickup and re-drop will be required before the project is completed. Keep reading to learn how to choose the best size for your project.

What Container Size Should You Use?

Estimating your garbage volume, significantly domestic junk or remodeling junk, can be difficult. Because of the consistency in shape and size, roofing debris (shingles) is a little easier to work with. Here is some information to keep in mind when picking a container size:

  • 10-Yard Dumpster: For a minor domestic cleanup or other projects, a 10-yard container might be appropriate. For example, debris removal from the basement or garage 250 square feet of deck removal, 1,500 square feet of single layer roof shingles, and a small kitchen or bath remodeling work.

  • 20-Yard Dumpster: For more extensive cleanup and remodeling work, a 20-yard dumpster is the best option. A 20-yard dumpster can store the equivalent of ten pickup truck loads of trash and debris.

    Because they are sold at a reasonable price and hold a considerable amount of debris, 20-yard dumpsters are the most commonly utilized containers in basement, garage cleanup, home remodeling project, flooring and carpet removal for a larger home, decking material removal of 300 to 400 square feet, or roof shingle removal of 2,500 to 3,000 square feet (single layer)

  • 30- Yard Dumpsters: For construction projects like major home additions—large remodeling projects, new home construction, or garage demolition, a 30-yard dumpster may be the ideal choice.
