We have the right sized dumpster for your next project
The right size dumpster for you depends on how much material you are disposing of. A dumpster's capacity is based on how much volume it can hold, measured in cubic yards. There are five dumpster rental sizes available, each with different capacities. Sizes range from 10 to 40 cubic yards, so there's a size for every project type.
The dumpster's name is equivalent to the volume it can hold. For example a 10 Yard Dumpster can hold 10 cubic yards of debris.
Browse through the dumpster sizes chart below to find the best one for your project.
When selecting a dumpster size you'll want to consider: the type of material you have, how long your project will go on for and the amount of debris you'll put into the dumpster. If you have a lot of heavy debris or an ongoing project you'll want to steer towards the larger sizes to make sure you have enough room.

Rent a dumpster,
make a difference
For every dumpster you rent from Sourgum Waste we plant a tree in a forest in need.
The capacity of a dumpster is calculated from the outside in. The exterior dimensions of the dumpster, it's footprint, are measured in feet which can be used to calculate the volume it can hold in cubic yards.
A cubic yard is simply a measure of volume. 1 cubic yard of space will take up a space that is 3ft long by 3ft wide by 3ft high.
The formula to calculate cubic yards is:
Length x Width x Height
So if you multiple the dumpster's length by width by height and divide that number by twenty-seven you'll get it's cubic yardage. Well it'll actually come out to be a little more than its yardage to account for the width of the dumpster's walls.
The graphic below will help you better visualize how big one cubic yard is compared to a 10 yard dumpster.
