What Size Dumpster Do I Want for a Roofing Project?

Choosing a dumpster size needs some educated guesswork. It's often difficult for individuals to estimate the sizes that they need for roofing jobs because, practically, they do not know just how much material their roofs contain.

There are, however, some basic guidelines you can follow to make a superb alternative. If you're removing a commercial roof, then you will probably need a dumpster that offers you at least 40 square yards.

If you're working on residential roofing project, then you can generally rely on a smaller size. You can usually expect a 1,500 square foot roof to fill a 10-yard dumpster. Single shingle roof debris from a 2,500-3,000 square foot roof will probably want a 20-yard dumpster.

A lot of folks order one size bigger than they believe their projects will take since they would like to stay away from the additional expense and hassle of replacing full dumpsters that were not large enough.


What if I need my dumpster in Portland picked up early?

When you make arrangements to rent a dumpster in Portland, part of your rental agreement includes a stated duration of time you are permitted to use the container. You usually base this time on how long you think your project might take. The larger the job, the the more time you will need the dumpster. Most Dumpster Rental businesses in Portland give you a rate for a specific amount of days. If you surpass that amount of days, you will pay an additional fee per day. In case the job goes more quickly than expected, you might be ended with the dumpster sooner than you anticipated.

If this really is the case, give the dumpster company a call and they'll probably come pick your container up early; this will permit them to rent it to someone else more quickly. You generally WOn't get a reduction on your own rate if you ask for early pick-up. Your rental fee includes 7 days (or no matter your term is), whether you use them all or not.

What are the Different Sizes of Dumpsters Accessible?

Depending on the size of your job, you might need a little or large dumpster that can hold all of the debris and remaining stuff.

Dumpster rental companies typically supply several sizes for people and companies. Deciding on the best size should enable you to remove debris as affordably as possible.

The most frequent dumpsters contain 10-yard, 20-yard, 30-yard, and 40-yard versions. If you are in possession of a little job, such as clearing out a garage or cellar, you can probably reap the benefits of a 10-yard or 20-yard dumpster. If you have a bigger job, such as a complete remodel or building a new house, then you will probably need a 30-yard or 40-yard dumpster.

A lot of folks choose to rent a bigger dumpster than they believe they will need. Although renting a bigger dumpster costs more money, it is more affordable than having to an additional dumpster after a little one gets full.


What is the Difference Between a Roll Off and Front Load Dumpster?

Roll off and front load dumpsters have features which make them useful for different types of occupations.

A roll off dumpster is delivered to your project location and left there until you want a truck to haul it and your debris away. They often have open tops and also a door on the front. This makes it simple for workers to load a wide variety of debris into the dumpster.

A front load dumpster has mechanical arms that that lift containers off the earth. The arms tilt to pour the debris into the truck's dumpster. It is a helpful alternative for businesses that collect large amounts of garbage.

While roll off dumpsters are generally left on location, front load dumpsters will come pick up debris on a set schedule. This makes it possible for sterilization professionals to remove garbage and trash for multiple residences and businesses in the area at reasonable costs.

10 yard dumpster measurements in Portland

A 10 yard dumpster is built to carry 10 cubic yards of waste and debris. A 10 yard dumpster will measure approximately 12 feet long by 8 feet wide by four feet high, although precise container sizes will change with different companies.

It might be difficult to choose just the container size you'll need for your house endeavor, but a 10 yard dumpster functions well for smaller clean-up jobs. To provide you with an idea, a 10 yard dumpster would carry:

  • Debris cleanout from a basement or garage A 250 square foot deck that's been removed
  • A single layer of 1,500 square feet of roof shingles
  • The debris from a little kitchen or bathroom remodeling job

If your job is large enough that you do not have room in your truck to haul everything to the dump, but little enough that you do not desire an enormous container, a 10 yard dumpster should work perfectly.


Does my waste get recycled?

When you rent a short-term dumpster, your aim is to fill it up and have the waste hauled away. But in case you'd like your waste recycled, you might need to really go about it in a slightly different way. Waste in the majority of temporary dumpsters is not recycled since the containers are so big and hold so much stuff.

If you are interested in recycling any waste from your project, check into getting smaller containers. Many Dumpster Rental companies in Portland have a broad variety of containers available, including those for recycling. These are normally smaller than temporary dumpsters; they're the size of routine trash bins and smaller.

Should you wish to recycle, figure out whether the business you are working with uses single stream recycling (you don't need to sort the substance) or in the event that you will need to organize the recyclable stuff into various containers (aluminum cans, cardboard, plastics, etc.) This is going to really make a difference in the total number of containers you should rent.

What's the smallest size dumpster available?

The smallest size roll off dumpster usually available is 10 yards. This container will hold about 10 cubic yards of waste and debris, which is roughly equivalent to 3 to 5 pickup truck loads of waste. This dumpster is a great choice for small-scale jobs, such as modest home cleanouts.

Other examples of jobs that a 10 yard container would function nicely for include: A garage, shed or loft cleanout A 250 square foot deck removal 2,000 to 2,500 square feet of single layer roofing shingles A small kitchen or bathroom remodeling project Concrete or dirt removal Getting rid of junk Take note that weight restrictions for the containers are imposed, so exceeding the weight limit will incur additional costs. The normal weight limit for a 10 yard bin is 1 to 3 tons (2,000 to 6,000 pounds).

A 10 yard bin will help you take care of small jobs around the house. When you have a larger project coming up, take a look at some larger containers too.
