Buck Disposal Blog

Choosing the right size roll-off dumpster is crucial to ensure efficient waste disposal and cost-effectiveness. We know making this decision can sometimes be tricky, which is why we are here to help! Here are the top 8 tips for selecting the appropriate size roll-off dumpster:

1. Assess Your Project

Evaluate the scope and nature of your project. Consider factors such as the type of waste, the volume of debris, and the duration of the project.

2. Estimate the Amount of Waste

Estimate the amount of waste or debris you expect to generate. You can do this by visually inspecting the site or consulting with your contractor or project manager. 

3. Know Your Size Options

Here at Buck Disposal LLC, we have three dumpster sizes to choose from. Our containers come in 20, 30 and 40 yards. Our 20 yard container is 4’ H x 8’ W x 22’ L and holds approximately 8 pick-up truck loads. Our 30 yard container is 6’ H x 8’ W x 22’ L and holds approximately 13 pick-up truck loads. Lastly, our 40 yard container is 8’ H x 8’ W x 22’ L and holds approximately 16 pick-up truck loads.

4. Consider Space Constraints

Assess the available space on your property or project site where the dumpster will be placed. Ensure that there is enough room for the selected dumpster size and for the roll-off truck to maneuver. All three of our container sizes fit comfortably in most residential driveways, but measuring is a good way to ensure you will have ample space to run your project.

5. Think About Weight Restrictions

Keep in mind Buck Disposal LLC’s weight restrictions. Our 20 yard dumpster has a 3-ton allowance. Our 30 yard dumpster has a 4 ton allowance, and our 40 yard dumpster has a 5 ton allowance. Excess tonnage will incur a fee of $60 per additional ton. Choose a dumpster size that can best accommodate your waste without exceeding weight limits.

6. Plan for Overfilling

It’s better to have a slightly larger dumpster than to risk overfilling a smaller one. Buck Disposal LLC requires all dumpsters to be level-full. Opting for a larger size can prevent the need for multiple hauls or additional fees for overfilled dumpsters.

7. Factor in Project Duration

Consider the duration of your project when selecting a dumpster size. Longer projects may require larger dumpsters or regular waste pickups to accommodate ongoing waste generation.

8. Review Cost and Budget

Compare our prices for our three dumpster sizes and consider your budget constraints. While opting for a larger dumpster may entail higher rental fees, it can ultimately save you money by avoiding additional haulage or overage charges.

By following these tips and considering your specific project requirements, you can confidently choose the right size roll-off dumpster for your needs.
