When it comes to selecting the right size of dumpster for your cleaning project, there are a few factors to consider. The size of the container, the type of debris you need to dispose of, and the volume of debris all play a role in determining the right size for your project. Rental companies offer a range of trash bins in different sizes, from 10 yards to 40 yards. To help you select the right size for your project, here's a comparison of bin sizes and their typical dimensions.
A 20 cubic yard bin is typically 22 feet long x 7.5 feet wide x 4.5 feet high and can hold up to 110-130 garbage bags. A 30 cubic yard bin is usually 22 feet long x 7.5 feet wide x 6 feet high and can hold up to 170-190 trash bags. For commercial service, we have 2, 4, 6 and 8 yard containers. We'll help you select the right size based on your specific project or business and the type of debris you're throwing away.
In addition to deciding what size of container is right for your project, you should also consider the type of container that will be easiest to use. We include visual representations of each bin size so you can easily compare the four most common bin sizes. The sizes of the containers listed in the table below are typical, but because the dimensions of the containers are not standardized, they may vary from one conveyor to another. Again, bin sizes and dimensions may vary, but common dimensions for a 40-yard trash bin are 22 feet long by 8 feet wide by 8 feet high. Understanding the different bin size options, their dimensions, and the common weight restrictions for each bin size will help you choose the right rolling bin size for your cleaning project.
Here's an example of how using a larger dumpster can save you money on your final rental bill.
