Dumpster Solutions can provide a variety of dumpster sizes to accommodate your dumpster needs. Dumpsters are useful time/labor saving devices. Dumpsters allow customers to quickly dispose of large amounts of material.

1. What are your dumpster rental needs?

Before you decide on anything, you should clearly define what your project’s needs involve. Are you throwing heavy or light material, wood, shingles, or house siding? Dumpster rentals service a variety of people such as contractors, homeowners, businesses, realtors, and landlords.

Here are a few examples of why each person mentioned above would need a dumpster:

  • Contractors: building a home, demolishing a building or home, landscaping, roof removal, and home siding replacement.
  • Homeowners: renovating a kitchen/bathroom/basement, cleaning a garage, removing a deck, gutting rooms, tearing down walls.
  • Businesses: garbage disposal, office clean-outs, building remodeling.
  • Realtors: cleaning out abandoned homes, home upgrades, home improvements, landscaping upgrades.
  • Landlords: home/building demolition, clean-outs, remodeling, large home/building repairs.

Whatever your needs are, it’s important to specify with as much detail is possible so that you and the dumpster rental company can choose the best dumpster possible for you. There are many dumpster sizes available. The bigger your project size, the bigger the dumpster you will need to rent.


2. Determine a dumpster rental size

The next step in the process is to choose your dumpster size. All dumpster sizes are based on cubic yards so for example, a 5 yard dumpster will hold 5 cubic yards of debris and junk, a 10 yard dumpster will hold 10 cubic yards of junk and so on.

Some dumpsters have swinging doors that open on one side which makes it easier if you have to throw heavy junk into it, but most are just your typical open top dumpsters. Here are some brief descriptions and dimensions of dumpster sizes.
