When planning to rent a dumpster, you may find yourself asking, ‘what size Dumpster Rental do I need? This is a good question, as it is crucial to choose a dumpster that can accommodate the amount of waste that you expect to generate from your project. Here at Bin-Drop Dumpster Rental, we have put together this handy guide to help you choose the perfect size of dumpster to meet your needs.

Dumpster Sizes

At Bin-Drop, our dumpsters are designed to be compact, which means that you benefit from a narrow bin that can fit comfortably in driveways and narrow streets thanks to its compact footprint. Although narrow, our dumpsters don’t compromise on capacity, the volume is the same, but the footprint is smaller, which makes out dumpsters a super convenient choice.

Our dumpsters are available in 10-yard, 15-yard, and 20-yard sizes. The size of a dumpster refers to its volume and is calculated in cubic yards. Therefore, the bigger the yard size, the more capacity your bin will have for your waste.

How Much Waste can a Dumpster Hold?

The amount of waste that the dumpster can hold does depend on the type of waste that you are disposing of, but here is a rough guide to help you find the perfect size dumpster for your project:

10-Yard Dumpster

A dumpster with a 10-yard capacity can typically hold around 3-pick-up trucks worth of waste. A 10-yard dumpster should give you the size needed to clear out an area such as a garage, basement, or cellar.

10-yard dumpsters are usually large enough to accommodate the debris generated by a landscaping project.

15-Yard Dumpster

A dumpster that has a 15-yard capacity holds an average of 4 or 5 pick-up trucks of waste. A 15-yard dumpster is ideal if you are clearing out more than one room at home. This size is also useful for garden landscaping job debris.

20-Yard Dumpster

A 20-yard dumpster should hold approximately six pick-up trucks worth of waste. The larger capacity of the 20-yard dumpster makes it an ideal choice for projects such as installing new windows or clearing out multiple rooms in your home.
