Roll off Dumpster Rental Sizes

Not sure which dumpster size you need?

Finding the right dumpster size for your specific needs is very important. Up to 80% of customers will order a dumpster size that is smaller than what is required for their junk removal, construction, or yard waste project. Instead of being left with more waste after your dumpster is picked up, play it safe and order a dumpster that’s larger than what you’ll need.

Our roll off dumpsters are available in 10 yard, 15 yard, 20 yard, 30 yard, and 40 yard sizes. Roll off container sizes are often determined by how many cubic yards of material they can hold.

Measure Your Junk

Measure your waste items to determine your dumpster rental size

Measuring cubic yards is easy! First you will need to measure the area and then calculate the volume. Use the steps below:

  1. Measure the length, width, and height in feet for the area your waste items are taking up. Always best to round up!
  2. Multiply the length x width x height to determine total cubic feet.
  3. Convert cubic feet into cubic yards by dividing total cubic feet by 27. (cubic feet ÷ 27 = cubic yards).
