At Sin City Dumpster Rental, we have been serving the city of Las Vegas for over a decade. During this time, we have come across many people who weren’t sure which size dumpster would suit their needs the best. Often, a homeowner will call to find out if the debris from their drywall removal project will fit into a 10-yard or 20-yard dumpster.
Even though you might want to hire the largest dumpster just in case you need the extra space, most types of home base projects can dispose of pretty much everything in a 30-yard dumpster. Though the 30-yard dumpster is too large for most projects, so why spend more on them.
The larger 30-yard and 40-yard dumpsters are better suited to contractors working on a large roofing or demolition project. Again, it depends on how much waste is going to be generated from the work being done.
We have been helping home, and business owners choose the right size roll-off dumpster for years. Our experience helps people choose a suitable dumpster based on what they want to accomplish and ensure that it is delivered on time.
If this is your first time renting a dumpster, we’ve gone over each size and the type of job they are best suited to. All measurements below are given in cubic yards.
The 20-yard dumpster
Dimensions: 8-feet in width by 20-feet long by 4-feet tall
If you want a slightly larger dumpster for more space or maybe to accommodate the waste from two DIY projects, then the 20-yard dumpster is the next one up. It is 2x the size of the 10-yard dumpster making it ideally suited to:
- Discarding debris from re-roofing and roof modification projects
- Old furniture and other large debris
- It can accommodate the debris from medium-sized projects
The 40-yard dumpster
Dimensions: 8-feet by 22-feet by 8-feet tall
Our 40-yard dumpster is the largest one available. It is the best choice for contractors and those handling demolition projects. However, since these 40-yard dumpsters are understandably large, you need to have adequate space on the site to accommodate
it easily. You also need space for our truck to park and roll the dumpster off.
