What Size Dumpster Do I Need?

As a property, restaurant or retail manager, you are always seeking ways to increase efficiencies, streamline operations and reduce costs. You probably think of the garbage dumpster on your property simply as a waste removal solution, but did you know that having the correct size dumpster for your business is important to your bottom line?   Consider the following Q & A when it comes to selecting a dumpster for your business:


1. What factors should I take into consideration for the size of the dumpster I need?

Many things figure into the size of container that works best for you, but the main factor is the way in which the container is loaded. In general, the bulkier the items are, the bigger the container needs to be.

Dumpsters come in different sizes and are measured in cubic yards, indicating the volume of waste they can hold. For example, on a roofing project, a 10-yard dumpster can hold 30 squares, a 15-yard can holds 45 squares, a 20-yard can holds 60 squares and so on. For residential home clean-outs, a smaller dumpster, probably a 10 or 20-yard would be appropriate.

2. How can having the right size dumpster save me money?

Selecting a dumpster of the appropriate size for your business can save you money. A container that is too large results in you paying unnecessary excess costs. And if your container is too small, it will have to be emptied and returned by your trash hauler more often than necessary, resulting in additional charges as well.
