FAQs of Choosing a Dumpster
- What do the different dumpster sizes cost? If you need to rent the smallest size, the 15-yard dumpster rental cost is $300.00 for a weekly rental. This cost includes delivery and pickup of your roll-off dumpster. For a slightly larger one, the 20-yard dumpster rental cost is $330.00. The rental period is still weekly and includes dropoff and pickup for this dumpster size. The next size up is a 30-yard dumpster. Our 30-yard dumpster rental cost is $395.00 for pickup and dropoff on a weekly rental. For larger projects, our 40-yard dumpsters cost $450.00/weekly with dropoff and pickup services.
- What are the dimensions of the different dumpsters? The 15-yard dumpster dimensions are 17ft x 8ft x 4.5ft, generally suitable for residential projects. Our 20 yard dumpster dimensions are 17ft x 8ft x 5.5ft. This size is ideal for standard construction debris or a large kitchen reno. Generally large enough for home construction or an office cleanout, the 30-yard dumpster dimensions are 18ft x 8ft x 7ft. Commonly used for large construction projects and complete home renovations, the 40-yard dumpster dimensions are 20ft x 8ft x 7.5ft.
- How much can you fit in a 20-yard dumpster, a 15-yard dumpster, a 30-yard dumpster, and a 40-yard dumpster? With the length of a 20-yard dumpster being 17 feet, you can fit about six truckloads inside. If your project is smaller, a 15-yard dumpster may be sufficient as it can hold four truckloads. Our 30-yard dumpster can hold ten pickup truck loads. The waste management 40-yard dumpster is ideal for large projects as it holds twenty truckloads. A roll-off dumpster keeps you from going back and forth to the dump, which saves your time, effort, gas, and dumping fees.
