While many people haul their excess waste from their home or business to a garbage site in the back of their truck to save money, rending a single dumpster could actually be cheaper in the long run. The average truck bed can hold about 2 cubic yards of materials safely. The average 20-foot dumpster can hold around 20 cubic yards of materials. While you might have to pay money up front for a dumpster rental, hauling over 10 trips to and from your location with a truck bed can end up costing more in the long run because of the high cost of gas a labor.
People also question about how much stuff can fit into a dumpster. And if you don’t deal with cubic feet on a daily basis, you probably have no idea how much a cubic foot can hold when it comes to objects, excess waste or construction materials, so here are some examples for the 10-yard dumpsters and 20-yard dumpster rentals from Budget Dumpster. 
The 10-yard dumpster can handle:
Small basement or garage clean outs
The removal of a 250 square foot deck
The removal of 1500 square ft. of single layer roof shingles
Minor yard debris cleanup
Small interior house remodeling jobs
Or about 5-6 truck loads.
The 20-yard dumpster can handle:
A large basement, attic or garage cleanup
Flooring and carpet disposal for a midsize or large house
The removal of 300 to 400 square feet of deck or decking materials
The removal of about 2500 to 3000 square foot of single layer roofing shingles
Or about 10 truck loads.
