Is a 10 Yard Dumpster the Right Size for Your Project?

A 10 yard dumpster is the smallest – and least expensive – dumpster we offer and is generally used for smaller junk removal and residential projects such as:

  • Attic, basement and garage cleanouts.
  • General household cleanouts.
  • Dirt and concrete removals.
  • Interior renovations.

10 Yard Dumpster Delivery Guidelines

Follow these general guidelines when you’re preparing for a 10 yard dumpster delivery:

  • Make room: About 60 feet of space (in length) is required in your driveway to drop off a dumpster. Make sure there are no cars or any other obstructions that would prevent the truck from getting access to the driveway.
  • All clear: The truck will need 23 feet of vertical clearance to raise the dumpster and place it. Make sure the delivery area is free of low-hanging wires or tree branches.
  • No need to wait: Dumpster deliveries are based on the most fuel-efficient routes, so your dumpster can arrive at any time throughout the day. Don’t worry, though, you don’t have to be there at the time of delivery.
  • Don’t forget: Once you have your 10 yard roll off, keep in mind of the debris you’re throwing in it as well as the weight limit.
