When It Comes to Dumpsters, Size Matters.
As the saying goes, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
WRS Dumpster Rental is very familiar with this proverb because we help our clients rid their properties of waste that quite possibly were prized possessions at one point in time. Plus, if it weren’t for your trash, there’d be no need for us. Your trash = our treasure. Still with me? Ok. Good.
Famous phrases aside, dumpster rental is actually a critical operation, and since it can be an infrequent occurrence, the first couple times can be confusing. That’s why we are here. Our goal is to make the process as easy as possible, which is why we have multiple options to choose from, with sizes to fit all needs (and up-front pricing on everything).
Our dumpster selection ranges from 10 to 40 yards, and each one is ideal for different types of jobs. Here is a quick breakdown:
Ten-yard dumpsters are the smallest size that we offer. These are equivalent to approximately three full pickup truck beds and would be recommended for a small business office or apartment cleanout. These are also ideal for small remodeling projects in residential kitchens, bathrooms, basements, or garages.
Twenty-yard dumpsters are the most common size that our clients order. These are suitable for most small-medium construction jobs on condos and houses.
Thirty-yard dumpsters are the second most popular size that we rent out. These are perfect for major house renovations, garage and shed demolitions, and new home construction. These are 22 feet long x 8 feet wide x 6 feet high.
Forty-yard dumpsters are almost exclusively use for large commercial applications. From roofing a hefty warehouse to cleaning out an entire company headquarters, the 40-yarder quite possibly is the way to go.
Keep in mind - these are just broad guidelines. Obviously, if you are disposing a lot of things from a small venue, you may want to upgrade to a larger dumpster. The same goes for big homes that are only trashing a small percentage of their stuff.
Remember, size matters. It’s always better to order a dumpster slightly larger if you are unsure. Ordering ones that cannot fit the entire load can result in unnecessary headaches, fees and wasted time.
