Is a 20 Yard Dumpster the Right Size for Your Project?

The 20 cubic yard dumpster is our most commonly-rented roll off container.  Its mid-range size makes it a handy option for a variety of projects, including:

  • Cleaning out your garage, basement, attic or other cluttered area.
  • Downsizing before a move or other change to your living situation.
  • Disposing of debris from remodeling your kitchen, bathroom or other room.
  • Disposing of construction debris like siding, shingles, lumber or drywall.
  • Cleaning up tree limbs, shrubs and other yard debris after a landscaping project.

How Does a 20 Cubic Yard Dumpster Stack Up Against Other Sizes?

A 20 yard dumpster rental is just right to handle cleanup for any mid-level project. However, if you’re planning a small-scale project, like general decluttering or minor home updates, a 10 or 15 yard dumpster would be your best bet. At the other end of the spectrum, our 30 or 40 yard dumpster would give you the most bang for your buck if you’re planning a large-scale job like finishing a basement or building an addition.
