Tips for Choosing a Roll-Off Dumpster Rental Size

Tips for Choosing a Roll-Off Dumpster Rental Size

Whether you need to have junk hauled away, remove renovation material, or get yard debris cleaned up at your New Jersey property, Hometown Waste has the perfect solution. Here are some tips for choosing a roll-off dumpster rental size to handle waste disposal quickly, affordably, and efficiently.

How Dumpster Rentals Work?

Dumpster rentals are similar to moving companies — units are rented with costs varying between sizes, availability, and added features. You decide what dumpster size works best and book it online. We will drop it off at your New Jersey residence or business location. From there, you can fill up the container, and we will haul off the debris.

About Our Roll-Off Dumpster Rental Sizes

There is a range of dumpster sizes available to rent.

10-Yard Dumpsters

The smallest dumpster size is the 10-yard rental. It is approximately the size of a four-door sedan and ideal for small projects, like pre-move junk removal and minor landscaping projects.

The 20-yard roll-off suits more extensive remodels and pre-move disposals. It can accommodate yard waste from roofing shingles to light demolition projects. It is approximately the size of two four-door sedans parked back-to-back.20 yard dumpster graphic - what fits in it

30-Yard Dumpsters

The 30-yard rentals are ideal for whole-house construction projects and estate or commercial cleanups. If you need to discard furniture, this dumpster is your go-to option. The 30-yard dumpster is the largest option with the convenience of 6-foot walls.30 yard dumpster - what fits in it

40-Yard Dumpsters

The commercial dumpster is a handy rental for larger estate renovation projects, ongoing demolition projects, and sizable construction jobs. These dumpsters have 8-foot walls, requiring loading equipment or machines to fill, making them suited for commercial use.what fits in a 40 yard dumpster infographic

Selecting a Roll-Off Dumpster Rental Size

Choosing the right rental for you depends on the project’s scope, how much debris you must haul, and where the roll-off rental will stand.

1. Your Project Type

A significant deciding factor is the nature of your project. A small construction project or pre-move junk haul requires a smaller dumpster. A larger scale cleanup or big furniture removal requires a bigger rental.

2. Debris Volume

Take a mental inventory of what you must remove and the required volume. A big construction project will need a deeper dumpster.

3. Space Available

The amount of space your property has available affects the size of your rental.
