Which Roofing Dumpster Size Is Right for Your Project?

The appropriate roofing dumpster size for your job depends on the type of shingles and the square footage of the roof. The two most common asphalt shingles are three-tab and architectural. Architectural shingles weigh slightly more than three-tab shingles due to their extra thickness.

What Is a Square of Shingles?

A square of shingles is the quantity of shingles needed to cover 100 square feet of roof. For example, a 2,000-square-foot roof is equal to 20 squares of shingles.

How to Pick the Right Dumpster for Roof Debris Removal

  • Determine how many squares of shingles you’re disposing of.
  • Consider the type of shingle and calculate the number of tons you’re disposing.
    • One square of three-tab shingles weighs 230-250 pounds.
    • One square of architectural shingles weighs 400-430 pounds.

Use the chart below to estimate the size and number of roofing dumpster rentals you will need for shingle removal considering the type of shingles and the size of the roof. Note that in most service areas we can only dispose of shingles in 10 and 20 cubic yard dumpsters.
