If you have a lot of garbage to get rid of at once, dumpster rental may be perfect for you. If you haven’t rented a dumpster before there can be a lot to know. This guide will help you pick out the right-sized dumpster for your needs.
The different sized dumpsters that dumpster rental companies use are 10 yards, 20 yards, and 40 yards. a 10-yard dumpster will hold about four or five pickup truck loads of stuff. the 20-yard dumpster is double the size so it will hold eight to ten pickup truck loads, and the 40-yard dumpster will hold double the size of the 20-yard, so about eighteen to nineteen pickup truck loads.
While dumpster rentals take the majority of items, there are some items they may not be able to take like batteries. Typically items such as dirt, concrete, asphalt, mixed dirt, sod, wood, green waste, trash, roofing, and construction debris can be disposed of using a dumpster rental.
