Cubic Yards

A yard is a two-dimensional unit of measurement. A cubic yard is a measure of three-dimensional volume. Dumpsters are measured in cubic yards. One square yard equals one 3’ by 3’ cube. We carry dumpsters from 12 to 40 cubic yards.

12-Yard Dumpster

Our smallest dumpster holds 12 cubic yards of junk. This size works well for mid-size projects such as shingles from a 1,500 square foot roof or waste from a small remodeling project. To envision the size, consider that this container will hold about 3 ½ pickup truck loads of debris.

15-Yard Dumpster

If you’re cleaning out a small house, this 15 cubic yard dumpster may be right for you. It holds approximately 4 ½ pickup truck loads or 80-100 33-gallon trash bags.

20-Yard Dumpster

A 20-yard dumpster holds roughly 6 pickup truck loads or 110-130 garbage bags of waste. This dumpster may be used when removing carpets from a large home or removing shingles from a roof over 1,500 square feet.

30-Yard Dumpster

This dumpster holds about 9 pickup truck loads of debris or 170-190 full trash bags. A 30-yard dumpster is usually used for larger commercial projects such as a home addition but is also an appropriate size for large home cleanouts.

40-Yard Dumpster

A 40 cubic yard dumpster is generally used for commercial purposes, such as construction sites, siding replacement, or extensive renovations. This dumpster holds approximately 12 pickup truck loads or 230-250 33-gallon trash bags.
