When it comes to waste dumpsters, size really does matter. You’ll find yourself in a bind if your dumpster starts overflowing because it’s not large enough to handle all the debris you’re throwing in there. On the other hand, there’s no sense getting a massive dumpster if you’re only going to fill it a quarter of the way. Depending on the type of waste you generate, you have various size junk bins to choose from. Here is some information to help you decide what size garbage dumpster you need to rent.
Small Projects – 4-Yard Dumpster
A 4-yard dumpster is ideal for smaller-scale projects, such as a small renovation job or clearing out a small storage space. If you’re eliminating things like small appliances, small furniture, or scraps, you’re going to need a bin to dump them into. In these cases, a 4-yard bin should do the job.
Medium Projects – 9-, 10- & 12-Yard Dumpsters
These size bins are the most popular and commonly requested. They’re ideal for clearing out trash and debris from just about any household task (except for a big renovation or demolition job). A mid-sized bin is ideal for eliminating debris from jobs such as clearing out a basement, kitchen or bathroom remodeling jobs, patio removal, old landscaping removal, tearing out a fence, and so forth. A 9- to 12-yard dumpster should do the trick for jobs such as these.
Large Projects – 14-, 20- & 40-Yard Dumpsters
These larger-scale waste dumpsters will be needed for bigger projects, such as clearing out an entire attic, ripping out entire sections of a home, and so on. Commercial units will often need these larger bins considering the amount of waste that is generated on a daily basis. These bins are ideal, especially when coupled with a junk removal service that hauls the bins away on a regular basis and returns the bins empty and ready to be filled once again.
