At Red Dog Dumpsters, we know that choosing the right dumpster size can be a daunting task. It can be difficult to estimate how much debris you’ll have and what size container will fit your needs. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to help you choose the right dumpster size for your project.
Why Choosing the Right Dumpster Size Matters
Choosing the right dumpster size matters for several reasons. If you rent a dumpster that’s too small, you’ll have to order another one or make multiple trips to the dump, which can be costly and time-consuming. On the other hand, if you rent a dumpster that’s too large, you’ll end up paying for more space than you need. It’s important to estimate your debris volume accurately to ensure you get the right size dumpster for your project.
Determine Your Debris Volume
The first step in choosing the right dumpster size is to determine your debris volume. Start by estimating the amount of debris you’ll have. If you’re doing a home cleanout, consider the items you’ll be disposing of, such as furniture, appliances, and household junk. If you’re doing a construction project, estimate the amount of building materials you’ll have, such as drywall, wood, and roofing materials.
Once you’ve estimated your debris volume, use our dumpster size guide to help you choose the right size container. Our 10-yard dumpster is perfect for small cleanouts, while our 15-yard dumpster is ideal for larger cleanouts and small remodeling projects. Our 15-yard dumpster is also great for construction projects and larger landscaping jobs.
Consider Weight Limits
In addition to choosing the right size dumpster, it’s also important to consider weight limits. Each of our dumpsters has a weight limit, and exceeding it can result in additional fees. It’s important to estimate the weight of your debris accurately to ensure you don’t exceed the weight limit. Keep in mind that heavy materials, such as concrete and dirt, can add up quickly, so be sure to factor in their weight when estimating your debris volume.
Think About Placement
Another factor to consider when choosing the right dumpster size is placement. Make sure you have enough space to accommodate the dumpster you choose. Our dumpsters are designed to fit in small spaces, but you’ll still need enough room for the delivery truck to maneuver and place the container. It’s also important to consider any obstructions, such as trees or power lines, that may prevent us from delivering or picking up the dumpster.
