Understanding Dumpster Sizes and What They Mean for Your Project

Choosing the appropriate dumpster size for your project is paramount for successful waste management. Dumpsters are measured in cubic yards, signifying the volume of waste they can hold. At Super Clean Industries, we offer a range of sizes:

  • 10 cubic yard dumpsters are ideal for minor tasks such as clearing out a small room or garage.
  • 15 cubic yard dumpsters are perfect for medium-sized cleanouts and minor remodeling jobs.
  • 20 cubic yard dumpsters cater to larger projects including full-scale home cleanouts and substantial renovation work.
  • 30 cubic yard dumpsters are designed for large-scale residential or commercial jobs.
  • 40 cubic yard dumpsters handle the most substantial, industrial-level projects.

Determining the Waste Volume of Your Project

Correctly gauging the waste volume your project will produce is a vital step in selecting the most suitable dumpster size. Here are some strategies to ensure you choose accurately:


  1. Identify the type of waste: Different materials have different volumes. Bulky items occupy more space, while small or compressible items fit more compactly.
  2. Evaluate the scale of your project: The project size directly impacts the volume of waste. Bigger projects typically produce more waste, requiring larger dumpsters.
  3. Consider the project duration: Projects lasting longer tend to generate more waste, and this should be factored into your waste volume estimate.
