The size of your project measured in tons of waste is the most important factor in your decision for what size dumpster you will need. With sizes that range from 8 to 40 yards, there is a wide-range of variety for you to choose. It is easy to think getting a larger size dumpster will be better, but often larger containers can have a lower tonnage limit than a smaller volume container.
You certainly don't want to rent too small, getting caught with left over debris. Also, why pay for a larger dumpster than you need? Whether your dumpster is headed to Oakland, San Francisco, or San Jose, have a look at our guide to dumpster sizes and let us help you make the right decision:
