These are typically about 22 feet long x 8 feet wide x 6 feet high. Though not as robust as their big brother, the 40 yarder, they can still hold quite a bit of debris. These containers clock in somewhere between 10 and 15 pickup truck loads of waste. This, of course, depends on what kind of debris it is and what kind of truck you have. This dumpster will get the job done for most average jobs.
Things to Consider before Renting:
- How long will I need the dumpster?
- Be aware of the allowed weight (if there is one) and don’t go over it or you may be charged an extra fee.
- Having stuff sticking out of the top is usually a no-no. The person picking it up may have to take it out and leave it because of laws concerning this.
- Hazardous waste isn’t allowed and needs to be disposed of properly.
- Take into consideration where you will put it so you can access it easily and the person bringing and picking it up can do so without too much trouble.
- There could be extra costs–fees for fuel, overages, late fees, different kinds of waste, and tonnage–so be aware of these.
What all will I be able to put in it?
- New house construction
- Commercial construction
- Partial house demolition
- Some commercial demolition
- Medium Renovations
- Whole roof replacements, whether residential or commercial
- Commercial site cleanups
- House clean-outs
- And anything else when you just need to get rid of a lot stuff!
Most people aren’t sure what size container they need. One thing to note is that you don’t want cut it too close just to save a few bucks. If you do that, it may cost you in the long run. If you try to get by with the smallest container and then have too much waste for it, you end up having to rent a whole new container or having to keep one for a whole extra week! So instead of saving a few dollars, it actually costs you more!
