Guide to Choosing the Right Dumpster Size for Your Renovation

Whether you’re a first-time DIYer or a seasoned construction professional, it’s always best to plan out each detail of your renovation in advance. This includes determining the size of your rental dumpster. Below are a few key considerations for choosing the right dumpster size for your next renovation project.

Size and material amount

When choosing the right dumpster size, it’s imperative to consider the scope of your renovation project and the size of the materials you’ll be disposing of. Rental dumpsters come in various sizes to best suit a wide range of different construction projects. Basing your dumpster size on the scope of work will save you a lot of hassle and money in the long run. Many people may feel inclined to choose a smaller dumpster due to the lower cost. However, overstuffing a small dumpster may actually be more expensive than renting a slightly larger dumpster. Overfilling a 10-yard dumpster, for instance, will likely necessitate a dumpster swap. This is when the supplier exchanges a full dumpster for an empty dumpster of the same size, typically accompanied by a fee. The process of swapping a 10-yard dumpster will likely be more than the total 15-yard dumpster rental cost. As such, it’s always best to consider the size and disposal materials before choosing your dumpster size.

Material weight

In addition to considering the size and amount of materials, you will also need to bear in mind the debris’ overall weight. The maximum weight limit for each dumpster will vary depending on their size. As such, be sure to assess the weight of your building materials and debris before choosing a dumpster size. 15-yard dumpsters, for instance, can carry a maximum 4,000 pounds. These dumpsters may be better suited to lighter materials, such as shingles, or smaller renovation projects. Larger dumpsters, on the other hand, can carry several tons worth of debris. This makes them ideal for larger construction projects or the disposal of heavy materials. This would include wood, flooring, plaster, and drywall. When considering the best dumpster size for your project, the weight of materials is equally as important as the amount and size. If you exceed the maximum weight limit of your rental dumpster, chances are you’ll incur additional fees.

Dumpster location

It is also important to consider your rental dumpster’s location and how it will affect the renovation project as a whole. For instance, homes and construction sites in busier areas or with restricted outdoor space will likely need to rent a smaller dumpster to better accommodate the limited area. Additionally, most dumpsters feature a hinged back door to allow for easier disposal. While this is very convenient, it is something you will need to consider when choosing the location for your dumpster. If you’re planning to place your dumpster on a small driveway or in a tight alley, you may not be able to open the hinged door to its full capacity. Therefore, you may need to choose a smaller dumpster size.

Materials – Weight, Extra Costs and Prohibited Items

How is the weight of my debris determined?

The truck drives onto a scale at the disposal facility where an initial weight is recorded (gross weight). The truck then empties the contents of the dumpster. Next, the truck drives onto a second scale that records the weight of the truck and the empty dumpster (tare weight). The difference between the first and second weights (gross – tare) is the weight of the debris in the dumpster. The scales are regulated by state bureaus of weights and measures.

What materials may incur extra costs?

$20/pc - mattresses.
$15.00/pc - non-commercial tires, no more than 10 per dumpster.
$150.00/pc - commercial tires, no more than 2 per dumpster.

What materials are prohibited?

Hazardous waste, dirt, industrial waste, chemical products, oil filters, herbicides, pesticides, radioactive material, solvents, paint (except completely dried latex paint cans, no liquids), other flammable liquids, aerosol cans, propane tanks, motor oil, transmission oil, lubricating/hydraulic oil, oil filters, contaminated oils (mixed with solvents, gasoline, etc.), antifreeze, appliances, petroleum contaminated soil/lead paint chips, tires, batteries, computers, monitors, televisions, microwaves, fluorescent tubes, railroad ties, medical waste, asbestos, animals, barrels, all liquids.
Nothing can be sticking out of the top of the roll off dumpster.

Property Considerations

Will the dumpster cause driveway damage?

Although driveway damage is unlikely, please be aware of the possibility of damage caused by the weight of the dumpster and the contents placed in the dumpster.
Prevent Scratching & Cracks
We recommend that you place 4′ x 8′ sheets or 2″ x 4″ plywood on your driveway where the dumpster will be placed. The wood will prevent the dumpster from scratching or cracking the driveway. Please take the proper precautions to protect your driveway!

Do I need a permit to place a dumpster on my property?

Dumpster permits are typically only required when placing a dumpster on public property such as a street, easement, or sidewalk.
Please contact your local township office or public works department to determine exact permit requirements for your specific situation. Permit requirements can vary within the same town based on placement specifics!

How large of a space do I need for delivery of the roll off dumpster?

It is recommended to allow 4’ of clearance on all sides of the dumpster to assure adequate clearance. Please refer to our Dumpster Selection Guide for dumpster dimensions.
