How Big Is a 15 Yard Dumpster?

The number of square feet in a 15 yard roll off dumpster is 540 square feet, which is calculated by multiplying 16 x 7.5 x 4.5.

A 15 yard dumpster can hold up to 15 cubic yards of debris, which is why it is called a 15 yard dumpster. 15 cubic yards is the equivalent of 80 to 100 33-gallon trash bags. Its smaller size means it can fit in most driveways or more compact areas.

Why is there such a wide pricing range?

Your location has a big impact on pricing, as each county sets its own disposal rates.

The material you need to discard also affects the rental cost. Different materials often have different disposal rates.

The weight of the material you put into the dumpster will determine the final price you'll pay. If you need a higher weight limit, your rental price will increase.

The best way to load your 15 yard bin is to walk larger items through the swinging door. Once you've placed all your bulkier items in, throw in lighter objects over the side. The 15 yard container has low walls, making it much easier to toss items in over the side. Adding the heavier items first and lighter items last helps with keeping the dumpster evenly balanced.

15 yard dumpsters take in the same items as any other dumpster size:

  • Household junk and furniture

  • Green waste

  • Dirt, stone, and concrete

  • Construction debris like drywall, wood, metal

  • Carpeting and flooring

How Does Renting a 15 Yard Dumpster Work?

If you're new to renting dumpsters, you might come across a lot of unfamiliar jargon. But don't worry, we're here to help you understand the process so that you won't encounter any surprises along the way. For a comprehensive guide on how to rent a dumpster, check out our resource.

To get started, you'll need to determine the appropriate weight limit for the material you need to dispose of. Weight limits are measured in US tons, with one ton equaling 2,000 pounds. By pre-purchasing a weight limit, you can dispose of a certain amount of material at a discounted rate.

Our easy-to-use online ordering process will guide you through each step of selecting the right weight limit for your needs. Alternatively, you can always give us a call at (732) 366-9355 and we'll be more than happy to assist you.

After you've placed your order for a dumpster, the next step is delivery. To ensure a smooth delivery process, we always check Google Maps to send the appropriate size truck to your location. If you're not on Google Maps, don't worry - we'll reach out to you directly to confirm the details and prevent any delays or complications.

To help make the delivery process even smoother, we have a few tips:

  • Clear the way: We'll need about 60 feet of space to deliver the dumpster, so please make sure any obstructions that could prevent the truck from accessing your desired drop location are moved out of the way, such as cars or other obstacles in your driveway.

  • Check overhead clearance: Most of our trucks require about 23 feet of vertical clearance to raise and place the dumpster, though we do have more compact trucks that need less. If you have concerns about overhead clearance, please don't hesitate to give us a call.

  • You don't need to be home: No one needs to be present for the delivery. Your dumpster may arrive at any time during the day due to changing traffic conditions and delivery schedules, but you can sign up for text message updates to know when to expect your delivery.

  • Load responsibly: Make sure to follow any guidelines regarding prohibited materials and be mindful of the rim - you cannot load above the dumpster's rim as it could pose a hazard to other drivers on the road.

When you're finished with your dumpster, simply let us know and we'll take care of the pickup for you. You don't need to be home for the pickup - just inform us when you're ready.

Once we pick up your dumpster, we'll transport it to the disposal facility. If your dumpster is within your weight limit, you're all set! However, if the weight limit was exceeded, we'll charge you the appropriate overage disposal fee as agreed upon.

After the pickup and any necessary fees have been assessed, you'll receive your payment receipt by email.
