How to Choose the Right Dumpster Size

May 8, 2020

Many homeowners choose to clean out or remodel their homes in the spring and summer. Whether cleaning out your garage or renovating your kitchen, you may find that you have more trash and junk than would fit in your weekly trash pickup. A residential dumpster rental is a great way to alleviate you of excess trash and junk. At ADM Rolloff, we provide dumpster rentals in a variety of sizes to fit any project.

Choosing the right size dumpster may be challenging since junk and trash always seem to multiply during a project. We want to help you determine the ideal dumpster without overpaying for too much space. The following guidelines can guide you to the dumpster for you:

6-Yard Dumpster

This dumpster would hold roughly what you could fit in the back of 1 and ½ pick up trucks. Typically, this size is recommended for garage clean outs, attic clean outs, basement clean outs, dirt/concrete removals, general household clean outs, and small interior renovations.

6 Yard Dumpster

15-Yard Dumpster

You can imagine that this dumpster will hold roughly 4 and ½ pick up trucks worth of trash or junk. This size could possibly work for interior renovations, smaller roof removal, deck removal, landscaping projects, bedroom remodels, and floor removal.

15 Yard Dumpster

20-Yard Dumpster

The 20-yard dumpster holds roughly 6 pick up trucks worth. This size could handle similar projects to the 15-yard dumpster, but with increased capacity for slightly larger projects.
