To make your next project go as smoothly as possible, it's important that you're using the right dumpster size.

When renovating or cleaning your home, moving debris yourself can be time-consuming and stressful. It won't take long for your property to be littered with debris and trash. When transporting grubby, sharp, and bulky waste materials to the dump, remember that an appropriately-sized dumpster can save you time and money.

Dumpster Dudez is always the right company to provide you with satisfactory dumpster rental services. We have provided tips in this article to help homeowners choose the right dumpster size for their renovation or home improvement projects.

Available Sizes

Dumpster Dudez has 10-, 15-, 20-, and 25-cubic yard dumpsters for rent. There's a dumpster rental option for every project! Choosing the right size dumpster for your project will save money since you won't pay for unused space. A dumpster that's too small for your project will cost more to replace.

To properly understand the dumpster, here is a mini-analysis of how to determine the correct size:

  • A 10-yard dumpster can hold approximately three truckloads of debris or 10 cubic yards of materials. It's best for homeowners embarking on basement, garage, and general household cleanups. It can also be used for small concrete removals and interior renovations.
  • 15-20 yard dumpsters are equivalent to six truckloads and are the right choice for big landscaping jobs, floor removals, roofing jobs, concrete removals, and bathroom remodels.
  • The 25-yard dumpster is the largest we provide at Dumpster Dudez. Whether you are undertaking a small demolition, a new home construction, a large pool removal, or concrete removal, it is the perfect solution for homeowners and businesses. It is equivalent to approximately eight truckloads.

We can handle a variety of types, including perishable and degradable materials. Visit our acceptable items page to learn more about what you can put in our dumpsters.

Consider the Weight

When hiring a dumpster, you should also consider the weight. Nonprofessionals only consider debris volume when it's just as important to consider its weight as well. For every dumpster size, there is a maximum weight that it can carry, and bricks and concrete may not be able to fill it completely. To handle heavier debris, you need a larger dumpster.

Why Dumpster Dudez Stands Out

Continuous dumpster service is most popular among commercial customers because it offers discounts and other benefits. However, if you call Dumpster Dudez, you will get any service you need, as we have a variety of plans available.

Dumpster Dudez has the right equipment with convenient drop-off and pick-up times that can be customized according to your schedule and a competitive dumpster rental rate. For reliable dumpster rental services, request your free instant quote today.

    Quick, quiet and placed exactly where requested. Got everything in I needed to and they picked it up just as quick and quiet as it was dropped off ( that's a big deal to me as a night shift worker ). Will return for all my big clean up needs

    As never renting a dumpster before, this was an easy smooth process. I was able to talk to Joan. She called and made sure any questions I had were answered and satisfied. This is not an ordinary thing for me so I was thankful. The drop off and pick up were seamless. They put the dumpster on wood so as not to mar the driveway. Even during the week rental Joan answered any and all questions in a timely manner. If you need their services, I very much recommend this business.

    Jean was great to work with. She helped me get the correct size dumpster to a Veteran who had a flooded basement. It arrived quickly, was placed exactly where we needed it, and picked up promptly. They even provided a discount because of being a Veteran-based charitable organization.
