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.
