Which Roofing Dumpster Size is Right for Your Project?

The appropriate roofing dumpster size for your job will largely depend on the type of shingles you are disposing and the square footage of the roof you are tearing off. The two most common asphalt shingles are three-tab and architectural, with architectural shingles weighing slightly more than three-tab shingles due to their extra thickness. 

Three-Tab Shingles:

Architectural Shingles:

When replacing or disposing of shingles, roofers use a standard of measure called a “square” to measure the total area of a roof. One square is equivalent to 100 square feet, so a 2,000 square foot roof would be equivalent to 20 squares total. A single square of three-tab shingles weighs between 230-250 lbs., while a square of architectural shingles can weigh between 400-430 lbs., requiring a larger dumpster for the same amount of material.

Roofing Dumpster Guidelines for Three-Tab Shingles vs. Architectural Shingles

Use the reference guide below to estimate the size and number of roofing dumpsters you will need for shingle removal based on the total number of squares you are disposing of. Note that in most service areas we can only dispose of shingles in 10 and 20 yard dumpster sizes. 

For Three-Tab Shingles:

  • 10-20 Squares of Shingles (1,000-2,000 Square Feet) = 10 Yard Dumpster
  • 20-40 Squares of Shingles (2,000-4,000 Square Feet) = 15 Yard Dumpster
  • 40-60 Squares of Shingles (4,000-6,000 Square Feet) = 20 Yard Dumpster
  • 60-80 Squares of Shingles (6,000-8,000 Square Feet) = 2 x 20 Yard Dumpster

For Architectural Shingles:

  • 10-20 Squares of Shingles (1,000-2,000 Square Feet) = 10-15 Yard Dumpster
  • 20-40 Squares of Shingles (2,000-4,000 Square Feet) = 15-20 Yard Dumpster
  • 40-60 Squares of Shingles (4,000-6,000 Square Feet) = 2 x 20 Yard Dumpster
  • 60-80 Squares of Shingles (4,000-8,000 Square Feet) = 3 x 20 Yard Dumpsters

These are rough approximations of the sizes needed for roof shingle disposal. For a more accurate estimation, call us up at 1-866-284-6164 and we’ll ensure you receive the right roofing dumpster for your project.
