Choosing the Right Dumpster Size for the Job

Dumpster RentalsHave you ever rented a moving truck and figured the one you picked might be way too big for the job, and then at the end of the day marveled at the fact that it was completely full? Or thought you would never be able to get the stuff you bought at the big box store into the trunk of your car and were surprised you had lots of room left over?


These examples are presented by the team at Perfect Cut Tree Service to illustrate that it’s not easy to guess the size of a space in relation to what you will need for a job, such as a household cleanup. We provide dumpster rentals in Cincinnati and want individuals to have the knowledge they need to make informed choices.


It’s important to make the right decision when you need a large-scale container for your project. Choose one too small and you’ve got stuff left that still has to be put somewhere; too large and you’re wasting money on space you don’t need.


For example, a 14-yard dumpster is ideal for lawn and tree debris or when you want to clean out your garage. A 20-yard dumpster can hold the contents of a large basement, attic, or a great deal of yard waste. Also, keep in mind that there are weight limits on dumpsters, with 11,000 pounds being a standard.
