Dumpster Sizes Explained

When comparing dumpster sizes to find one that fits your project's needs, it's important to understand how rental companies measure dimensions.

Nearly all roll of dumpsters have the same width (generally eight feet). That makes it possible for businesses to make use of the same trucks to transport a wide variety of dumpsters. When you see a dumpster's measurements, therefore, you can presume that they refer to depth and length. You may also see dumpster sizes listed by yards. This really refers to square yards that measure the dumpster's volume.

What Size Do You Need?

If you're coordinating a big commercial project, then you'll probably need a 40-yard dumpster or bigger. Large home renovations may demand a 30-yard dumpster, but most smaller home repairs only want 20-yard or even 10-yard dumpsters. Speak with an expert should you want more advice on choosing a dumpster size that fits your job.


Security Recommendations for Renting a Dumpster

1. Engage the rear wheel locks when you park the dumpster on an incline. Even a little incline could cause it to roll.

2. Do not overfill the dumpster. Things shouldn't stick out of the top opening.

3. Use care when opening the dumpster door, and be sure to lock it when you're finished.

4. Wear safety gloves to protect your hands while loading debris.

5. A back support brace can help prevent injuries while carrying heavy items to the dumpster.

6. Just let grownups near the dumpster.

7. Never put chemicals in the dumpster. Once they enter the landfill, they can leak out and contaminate your local ground water.

8. Be sure you have lots of lighting when transferring debris to the dumpster. If your plan is to work at twilight, get a light that provides enough illumination.

Building Dumpster Rental in Columbus - Do You Need One?

Although local governments commonly provide waste disposal services, very few of them are going to haul away construction debris. That makes it important for people to rent dumpsters to allow them to dispose of waste during construction endeavors.

The most common exception to this rule is when you've got a truck that's big enough to transport all construction debris to a landfill or landfill drop off point. If you are working on a little bathroom remodeling project, for example, you could find you could fit all of the debris in a truck bed.

Other than quite small projects, it is recommended that you rent a dumpster in Columbus for construction projects.

If you're not certain whether your municipality accepts construction debris, contact the city for more advice. You'll likely find that you will need to rent a dumpster in Columbus. Placing debris outside for garbage removal could potentially result in fines.


Dumpster Rental in Columbus Costs: Flat Rate vs Per Ton

In case you are looking to rent a dumpster in Columbus, one of your primary considerations is going to be cost. There are generally two pricing options available when renting a dumpster in Columbus. Flat rate is pricing dependent on the size of the dumpster, not the amount of stuff you place in it. Per ton pricing will bill you based on the weight you need hauled.

One sort of pricing structure isn't necessarily more expensive than the other. If you know just how much stuff you have to throw away, you might get a better deal with per ton pricing. On the other hand, flat rate pricing can help you keep a limit on prices when you are coping with unknown weights. Whether you regularly rent dumpsters for work or just desire a one time rental for a project round the home, you want to shop around for the best rental prices predicated on your own needs.

When will my dumpster get picked up?

You are going to usually schedule the amount of time you plan to maintain the dumpster when you first telephone to set up your dumpster service. This usually includes the dropoff and pick-up dates. Most companies do request that you be present when the dumpster is delivered. This is essential to ensure the dumpster is placed in the most effective area for your project. You really do not have to be present when the dumpster is picked up to haul it away.

If you get into your job and recognize you need pick-up sooner or later than you originally requested, that's not a problem. Only telephone the company's office and clarify exactly what you need, and they'll do everything they can to accommodate your request. There may be times they cannot match your adjusted program just because of previous commitments, but they'll do the best they are able to in order to pick your dumpster up at the appropriate time.

  • A garage demolition
  • Entire-home window or siding replacement (for a small- to medium-size home)

10 yard dumpster dimensions in Columbus

A 10 yard dumpster is built to hold 10 cubic yards of waste and debris. A 10 yard dumpster will measure about 12 feet long by 8 feet wide by four feet high, although exact container sizes will vary with different firms.

It can be difficult to choose just the container size you will need for your house project, but a 10 yard dumpster functions well for smaller cleaning occupations. To provide you with an idea, a 10 yard dumpster would hold:

  • Debris cleanout from a cellar or garage A 250 square foot deck that has been removed
  • A single layer of 1,500 square feet of roof shingles
  • The debris from a small kitchen or bathroom remodeling job

If your job is large enough that you don't have room in your truck to haul everything to the dump, but small enough that you don't desire an enormous container, a 10 yard dumpster should work perfectly.


How much in advance do I need to reserve my dumpster?

As with any service, it is almost always an excellent plan to reserve your dumpster as far ahead as you possibly can in order to make sure the dumpster will be available when you really need it. If you wait until the last minute, there is no guarantee the company will probably have the ability to fill your order.

Two or three days notice is normally sufficient to ensure your dumpster delivery in time. Recall the most active days tend to be on Mondays and Fridays (surrounding the weekend), so if you're able to organize your job for the middle of the week, you've got a better opportunity of getting the dumpster you will need.

If you find out you want a dumpster the next day or even the same day, please go right ahead and phone the company. If they have what you need, they'll certainly make arrangements to get it to you as soon as possible.

Terms to be aware of when renting a dumpster in Columbus

When you rent a dumpster in Columbus, you are dealing with professionals who use terms associated with the construction industry and dumpsters each day. As you probably do not use these terms every day, here's a bit of the lingo to get you acclimated. This will actually help you cope with business employees who may get impatient if you don't understand what they are explaining about their products.

"Container" and "roll-off" are both acceptable terms for the big metal box you need to rent. Professionals do not use the term "dumpster" as much as the other terms. Containers are often leased in cubic yard sizes, but you do not have to include the "cubic" part. Only say "yard" or "yarder." If, for example, you wish to rent a 30-yard dumpster, you may say, "I am interested in a 30-yard roll-off" or "I'd like to rent a 30-yarder." Use these terms, and you will seem like a guru when you call.


Do I require a permit to rent a dumpster in Columbus?

If that is your very first time renting a dumpster in Columbus, you may not know what is legally permissible in regards to the placement of the dumpster. If you plan to place the dumpster entirely on your own property, you're not typically required to acquire a permit.

If, however, your job requires you to set the dumpster on a public street or roadway, this will often mean that you need to submit an application for a permit. It's almost always wise to consult your local city or county offices (maybe the parking enforcement office) if you have a question concerning the need for a permit on a street.

Should you fail to obtain a permit and find out later that you were required to have one, you will probably face a fine from your local authorities. In most dumpster rental in Columbus cases, though, you should be just fine without a permit as long as you keep the dumpster on your property.
