Once you decide you need to rent a dumpster the next question most people have is what size dumpster are the going to need. We’ve helped thousands of our Boston dumpster rental customers figure just the right size canister for their projects, just give us a call and we’d be happy to help. Estimating the size of one can be tricky, so we don’t recommend doing it yourself if you don’t have any experience in estimating the right size. The best thing you can do is call us to determine the perfect size for your needs.
What is the standard size for dumpsters? The size of dumpsters is measured in cubic yards. The most common dumpsters come in sizes of 10 yard, 15 yards, 20 yards, 25 yard, 30 yard, 35 yard and 40 yards. For example, a 10-yard dumpster can hold up to 10 yards of waste materials.
The most frequently asked question is of course price, bigger dumpsters are heavier and harder to transport which is the reason why they are more expensive simple as that. It’s not so easy to transport a 40-yard dumpster in the streets of Boston.
It’s all about the dumpster size
One of the most frequently asked questions about dumpsters is their transportation. Of course, that doesn’t mean that you’ll have to do it yourself. It is our duty to deliver it to your home address or job site, and after it has been filled with waste materials, we take the fully loaded dumpsters and transport them to the landfill. All of that is included in the price of renting one.
The next frequently asked question is the size of the dumpster you need is too big to fit in your yard. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about that. The best solution for that is to rent a smaller dumpster and fill it up twice or just rent two smaller ones. For example, if you have 20 yards of waste and the 20-yard dumpster is too big, take two 10 yard dumpsters to solve the problem, or a cheaper thing to do is to take only one 10 yard and fill it up twice, but that takes a lot more time to do.
