Dumpster Rental Size Guide and Roll-Off Sizes Chart

Dumpster Sizing Guide

What size dumpster is right for your project? It depends on the size of the project you are working on and the footprint you have available to place the dumpster.

Roll-off dumpster rental sizes typically are measured in cubic yards. The exterior dimensions of the dumpster are usually measured in feet. To find the volume of a dumpster you simply multiply the exterior dimensions of width, height and length in feet and then divide the final figure by 27 to determine total volume in cubic yards.

When you are renting a dumpster you will also want to think about the type of project you are working on and the kinds of materials you will be putting in the dumpster. For instance, filling a dumpster with fallen leaves and yard waste will create far less weight than using it to dispose of construction materials or demolition rubble like bricks, concrete and lumber.

There is really no need to undertake complex calculations anymore - the free Dumpster Rental Size Guide and Roll-Off Sizes Chart from Dumpster Market gives you an easy way to estimate the size you will need for your particular project. In this dumpster sizes chart we’ve broken down each roll-off dumpster size by dimensions, common uses, and their capacity, equivalent in full-size pick-up trucks, to help you decide which one is right for you.
