Small dumpsters are a popular choice for homeowners in Sussex and Orange counties. They’re often the ideal choice for seasonal yard clean up, single layer roof tear offs, and moving debris/cleaning. Many homeowners, however, aren’t sure if a 10-yard dumpster rental will work for their clean up job.
Size of a 10-Yard Dumpster
To get a feel for space and size you’ll get renting a dumpster of this size, look at your kitchen stove. The standard stove takes up one cubic yard of space. In your mind, visualize 10 stoves, back to back, in two rows of five. That’s how much space there is in a 10-yard dumpster. In most cases, this is small enough to fit in a driveway or side yard, yet large enough to hold the trash and debris generated in most household cleaning projects.
Is a 10-Yard Dumpster Right for Your Project?
In general, homeowners rent a 10-yard dumpster for two types of projects. Heavy debris such as concrete, dirt, and roofing shingles are usually best disposed of in this small size dumpster. In addition, a 10-yard dumpster is also appropriate small clean up jobs such as attics or basements where the items being disposed of aren’t bulky. If you’re not sure, please give us a call so we can help guide you to the perfect dumpster size for your project.
Other uses for 10-yard dumpsters include moving dirt, concrete disposal, basement, attic, and garage clean outs, non-bulky household cleaning such as spring cleaning, landscaping and other yard debris, single layer roofing shingles, remodeling projects or small flooring jobs.
Pro tip: if you’re on the fence about what size dumpster to rent, it’s wise to go with the larger size to avoid overage charges and/or multiple pickups and drop-offs.
