What Can I Fit In a Dumpster

What Can I fit In a Dumpster

Every home has that proverbial "black hole”. Is yours in the basement, the attic, the garage, the shed, that spare room? The “black hole” is that place in your home where broken, unused, or worn out items are never to be seen again….until you open that door. Somehow these objects continue to accumulate until there is no space left. Out of sight, out of mind, right?

Once you make the decision to unclutter your space, your next step should be to call Red Dog Dumpsters. You know the job is going to be a big one especially if there are large items such as furniture or appliances, but do you know what size to rent? You don’t want to pay for a dumpster and then only use half of it, but then again you also don’t want to have to order a second dumpster because you filled the first one up and have more stuff.

Red Dog Dumpsters come in 2 sizes, a 10YD and a 15 YD. The 10YD dumpster is the most popular size used for residential clean outs and the dimensions are 8’ Wide x 12 “ Long x 3.5’ Deep. But maybe your clean out is a big one, in that case the 15YD is 8’ Wide x 12” Long x 6” Deep.

To help you determine what size you need, a 10 yard dumpster will hold:

4 – 14’ Canoes with a hole in the bottom

5 – Overstuff reclines that no longer recline

8 – Washing machines with or without the lost socks

11 – dirty old mattresses

74 – sets of broken men’s golf clubs

313 – 42” flat screen tv’s with broken screens

381 – split motorcycle helmets that saved your skull

405 – computer printers that are out of ink

5,530 – Plastic beer mugs

6,480 – Barbie dolls

103,219 - iphones that died from falling in the toilet

If you have a “black hole” that needs to be cleaned out, contact our office at 615-933-3300 or 832-781-3300 or visit us online at for all of your dumpster rental needs.
