Tips for Choosing the Right Size Dumpster for Your Debris Removal Needs

Last updated 5 years ago

Whenever you undergo a major construction or remodel project, you’re faced with a ton of important decisions. Obtaining the proper permits, finding the right building materials, hiring a competent staff—even the smallest project can become complicated fast. One aspect of your project that you should be sure to address is debris removal. Here are a few tips for choosing the right size dumpster

Consider the Size of Your Project

Since different jobs produce different amounts of waste, it’s important that you make a fairly accurate estimate of how much debris you will produce before you choose a dumpster. If you’re remodeling a small bathroom, you’ll probably only need a 10-yard roll-off container. If you’re gutting the whole floor of an office building, you’ll need at least one 30-yard container. When in doubt, you should err on the side of extra space.

Determine Length of Use

Some projects can take a week, while others can last for months, or longer. When choosing your dumpster, you should have a good idea of how long you intend to use it. Large, roll-off containers are ideal for short projects, since they make it easier to take away large amounts of debris at once. Front-load dumpsters, on the other hand, are designed to provide more permanent waste management solutions. 

Measure Available Space

Often, the dumpster rental size is decided by your environment. If you only have an alley’s worth of space, a three-yard front-load dumpster may be all you can accommodate. If you have an entire construction site open to you, then you can opt for the huge, 30-yard roll-off containers.
