Frequently Asked Questions

What size dumpster do I need?

A good rule of thumb is that a 2 yard dumpster will hold three to four residential carts. Most retail stores will order an 8 yard dumpster serviced weekly and then service can be adjusted to every other week if you find the dumpster is not being filled up.

What materials can NOT be placed in the dumpster?

Generally speaking any hazardous waste, liquids or special wastes such as paints or pesticides may not be disposed of in a front load dumpster. Further some types of materials may not be mixed in the load if they are required by law to be recycled such as cardboard. Special handling is required for appliances and computers.

A 30 yard is 22’ feet long and 5’ high. We estimate that you can fit approximately 10 level pick up truck loads in one dumpster.

Average roll off weights for home renovation projects are from two to four tons while larger projects can range from seven to eight tons per haul.
