How Do I Know What Size Dumpster I Need?

How Do I Know What Size Dumpster I Need?

Dumpsters come in all different sizes. From small 4-yard bins to commodious 20-yard canisters, these receptacles can be used to clean up a mess of any size.


There are many reasons why people rent dumpsters. But unless you dispose of massive amounts of waste on a regular basis, odds are you don't know much about these big metal receptacles. Here at Bin There Dump That, we answer questions about dumpster rental every day. Probably the most common queries we get from new and returning customers concern dumpster size. Because they want to get the best possible fit, they often ask us to explain dumpster dimensions. Let us take a moment to discuss this sometimes confusing topic.

Standard Measurements

Dumpster size is determined by the number of cubic yards of waste a canister can accommodate. For reference, one cubic yard is 3 feet long, 3 feet wide, and 3 feet deep. Using an everyday example, that's about two garbage cans full of waste. Now that you know how much the standard measurement unit can hold, let us review a few popular size options.

4-Yard Dumpster

The smallest canister we offer holds just four cubic yards of waste. At 9 feet long, 6 feet wide, and 2 feet tall, these bins are about the size (except for the height) of a compact car. Although seemingly small, these diminutive dumpsters can hold a lot of debris without taking up too much of your driveway.

Common Uses:
-Small home clean-outs: attics, closets, single-car garages
-Minor home projects, remodeling jobs, patios, decks
-Landscaping debris
-Topsoil
-Gravel
-Bricks or concrete

6-Yard Dumpster

At 10 feet long, 5.5 feet wide, and 3 feet tall, these slightly larger canisters have about four extra garbage cans of space. That might not seem like a lot, but it can come in handy when there's more waste than you anticipate.

Common Uses:

-Small home clean-outs
-Minor home renovation projects
-Landscaping debris
-Topsoil
-Gravel
-Bricks or concrete

10-Yard Dumpster

Large enough to hold a lot of waste without taking up your entire driveway, 10-yard dumpsters are always in high demand. At 10 feet long, 7 feet wide, and 4 feet tall, they're about as big as a medium-size sedan.

Common Uses:

-Seasonal home clean-outs
-Roof shingles
-Kitchen/bathroom remodels
-Garage clear-outs
-Construction/landscaping debris

15-Yard Dumpster

Another popular rental option, our 15-yard unit is 11 feet long, 8 feet wide, and 4.5 feet tall. Recommended for homeowners with medium to large driveways, these canisters are quite capacious.

Common Uses:

-Medium to large household clean-outs
-Broken furniture
-Home renovation projects
-Flood or fire restoration

20-Yard Dumpster

A legitimately large canister, our 20-yard unit is 11 feet long, 8 feet wide, and 6 feet tall. About the size of an SUV, it could take up about half your driveway.

Common Uses:

-Home additions
-Roof replacement
-Flood or fire restoration
-Home clean-outs
-Major home remodeling projects
