As you get started on your construction, remodel, or junk removal project, one thing you’ll need to consider is dumpster rental services. In CT, K.E. Braza is a leading dumpster rental supplier for construction projects both large and small. But when it comes to dumpster rentals, you’ll first need to determine the necessary size(s) for your project.

Take it from us: bigger isn’t always better, especially if you don’t have a lot of space to work with. You also don’t want to pay for a larger dumpster than you need. When it comes to large or small dumpster rentals, there are a few things to consider to help you determine the size needed for your project. Here are a few tips to consider:

Small or Large Dumpster Rental Guidelines

When it comes to popular-size dumpsters, these are the ones that are most commonly rented roll-off dumpsters:

10-Yard Dumpster

A 10-yard dumpster is a good starting point for smaller projects. With a small dumpster rental, you’ll still have enough room for about four pickup truckloads of material. This is a good option when you have to do a cleanout, but you have a tight or limited amount of area for the dumpster itself. It’s typically eight feet wide by 11 feet long, providing ample room for most items. Use a 10-yard dumpster for renovating a single room, for example.

12-Yard Dumpster

Slightly larger, these still work for tighter areas. They measure eight feet wide still but are 11 feet long. It can hold about six pickup trucks full of material. This is the most commonly used roll-off dumpster for clean-up projects and small renovations. You can also use it well for very heavy materials.

15-Yard Dumpster

The next size up is the 15-yard dumpster. This one is still eight feet by 16 feet, but it adds more storage space by having taller sides (usually four feet tall instead of three and a half feet tall). It’s not as commonly available but tends to work well for slightly larger projects because it can hold bulky items with ease. It can also be a good option for very heavy items. This size dumpster has enough room for about six truckloads of material.

20-Yard Dumpsters

Dumpsters for construction projects that are larger, such as a kitchen clean-out, often need more space to be readily available during demo work. These large dumpster rentals can help by providing about eight pickup truck loads of space. They are 22 feet long, which means they fit into most driveways but may have some limitations in tighter spaces. If you need trash containers for big cleanouts, this option tends to be ideal because it allows you a lot of room in between dumps.

25-Yard Dumpster

Those who need dumpsters for construction projects that involve taller items may benefit from 25-yard dumpsters. These tend to be eight feet wide to fix in a driveway and 16 feet long. They also tend to be as tall as six feet. This provides a good option for those scenarios when you have items that are taller or longer. This size can hold eight to 10 pickup trucks worth of material.
