How much can a 10 yard dumpster hold?

Of the standard roll off container sizes, the 10-Yard is considered the smallest sized roll off bin.  This size dumpster holds approximately 10 cubic yards of material, a volume which approximately equates to three full truck-bed loads.  Because this dumpster is the smallest, it’s typically used for smaller-scale jobs, such as attic, shed, basement, and garage clean outs; small kitchen or bathroom remodeling or renovation; disposal of up to 15 single-layer shingle squares (1 shingle square covers roughly 100 square feet; 3 bundles of shingles equals  1 square); removal of concrete, brick, cinder block, asphalt, and dirt; disposal of up to 250 square feet of decking material.



How much can a 15 yard dumpster hold?

This dumpster size can hold exactly 15 cubic yards worth unwanted debris.  Like the 10- and 12-Yard dumpsters, it’s typically used for smaller-scale projects.  Using the 15-Yard container allows for disposing of approximately 300 square feet of decking material and 2,000 square feet of single-layer shingles, which is about 50 square feet more decking material and 500 square feet more single-layer shingle disposal capacity.



How much can a 12 yard dumpster hold?

The second smallest of the standard roll off dumpster sizes, the 12-Yard is a mere 2 cubic yards larger than the 10-Yard dumpster, with exactly 12 cubic yards of holding capacity.  The 12-Yard dumpster, too, is typically used for smaller-scale jobs, such as attic, shed, basement, and garbage clean outs; small kitchen or bathroom remodeling or renovation; and removal of concrete, brick, cinder block, asphalt, and dirt; and can dispose of roughly 250 square feet of decking material and 1500 square feet of single-layer shingles.



How much can a 20 yard dumpster hold?

A bit larger than its predecessors, the 20-Yard helps dispose of materials for larger-scale jobs.  Although used often by contractors, this size container is perfect for large attic, shed, basement, and garage cleanouts; large bathroom or kitchen remodeling or renovation; disposal of up to approximately 400 square feet of decking material and nearly 3,000 square feet of single-layer shingles; and removal of large amounts of construction and demolition material.  When disposing of heavy material, such as dirt, brick, and concrete, loading it to the container’s lip (i.e., top or water-line) is expressly forbidden, as a container with such heavy weight is difficult to haul away and manage.
