The Size Selection Guide

We have 4 main dumpster sizes available in Columbia; the 10, 20, 30, and 40-yard roll-off dumpsters, but how do you know which to choose for your clean-out project? You need to know their dimensions and the projects they are suitable for. Let's get to it:

10 Yard Roll Off Dumpster

A 10 yard dumpster is the smallest size available, and is best if you do not have a lot of debris or the space to fit a larger dumpster. A 10 yard dumpster can hold 10 cubic yards of material, about 4 pickup truck loads, typically holds approximately 2 tons of debris.

Dumpster Sizes

It's hard to understand how much can fit into each kind of dumpster, so we put together some information about what each dumpster is best suited for.

The 10 cubic yard roll-off dumpster is the smallest dumpster size, it fits into tight areas, including smaller driveways, and can contain the equivalent of 4 pickup truck beds. It is a budget-friendly dumpster most suitable for small renovations and clean-outs. It is the perfect size for small residential projects like:

  • 1,500 sq ft of roofing

  • Single-room, small kitchen, and bath renovations

  • Concrete & heavy debris removal

  • Basement/ Attic/ Garage clean-outs

  • 250 sq ft deck replacement

  • Small yard cleanup projects

All our 10-yard dumpsters have the same capacity and volume of 10 cubic yards but could vary slightly in dimensions. They can hold 10 cubic yards of material with at least a 1-ton weight limit (2,000 lbs), so you need to watch what you throw into it carefully. You do have to select your ton limit to fit your project's requirements while ordering online.

The 20 cubic yard dumpster has two openings, one at the side and the other at the rear door, for easy waste disposal. It is most suitable for larger residential projects or small construction works. This size is also perfect for medium-sized renovations and clean-outs, such as:

  • Multiple room renovation

  • Medium kitchen or full bath renovations

  • Multiple room clean-out

  • Large deck or roof replacement

  • Concrete & heavy debris removal

  • Yard cleanup with small trees

This dumpster type can fit 8 pickup truck bed loads as it is usually 20 feet long by 8 feet wide by 3.5 feet tall, with a capacity and volume of 20 cubic yards. However, just like the 10-yard dumpster, the dimension of the 20-yarder may vary slightly.

An average order of this dumpster comes with at least a 2-ton limit (4,000 lbs), but you can customize the weight limit depending on the project and the waste that needs disposal.

The 30 cubic yard roll-off dumpster is sturdier for demolition & construction waste. It's also used to move heavy furniture and mattresses for big clean-outs. Its dual doors allow you to use the rear for loading or the top opening for throwing waste into it. Other functional uses of this dumpster are:

  • Major home renovation projects

  • Construction projects

  • Large estate clean-outs

  • Removal of trees and storm debris

  • Large renovations

  • Estate cleaning

  • Storm debris removal

The 30-yard dumpster is generally 20 feet long by 8 feet wide by 5 feet tall, with different styles having varying dimensions. Regardless of dimensions, all 30-yard dumpster rentals are built and designed to have the same capacity and volume of 30 cubic yards, which can fit about 12 pickup truck bed loads.

The weight limit of the 30 cubic yard dumpster for an average order is 3 tons (6,000 lbs), but you can change it to your preferred weight limit based on the quantity and material you're disposing of.

The Rental Process in Columbia, MD

The rental process includes everything from ordering the dumpster to getting it delivered and picked up after use. All dumpster pricing is impacted by service location, material disposed of, and weight of the load. You keep the dumpster for as long as required and call us to pick it up when ready. Our dumpsters come with a complimentary rental period, which you can extend at a cost if needed.

Sourgum Waste wants you to know what you're getting and how to get it right the first time. Our easy online ordering platform lets you control the entire ordering process, including the selection of size, weight limit, and rental period, so you get the perfect dumpster for your project's needs. Still unsure? Or, do you prefer to speak to a live person? Contact us by phone or email and we will be more than happy to assist.

Once you order your dumpster you can use the Sourgum Dashboard to monitor and update everything about your order. We also email you every step of the way to keep you updated on when to expect your dumpster delivery. Even if you won't be at the delivery location, our drivers are trained experts who pay attention to details and will deliver the dumpster exactly where you have directed. We appreciate graphic descriptions like images, too; they help make delivery more precise.

Once your order has been confirmed and payment cleared, delivery is the next step. We first confirm your location through Google Maps to avoid any issue arising from your address. If there are no issues, we move on to the dumpster delivery, but if there are, we'll reach out to you for more details. Our priority is getting that dumpster to you so you can continue with your project!

No, it is not as long as the rented dumpster is placed on your private property. However, a permit for a dumpster rental will be needed in the city of Columbia if your dumpster needs to be placed on the street or in any other public area. This ensures the dumpster will be placed in a location that does not interfere with traffic or safety.

Next step is to load your dumpster. What you put into a dumpster impacts the price you pay, as well as the environment. Typically most non-hazardous materials including household waste, bulky furniture, construction debris, yard waste, and appliances can be put into a dumpster. However, some materials are regulated or banned by local and federal regulations in order to protect people and the environment. We have a helpful guide for what can and cannot go into a dumpster in Columbia MD as well.

Of the entire rental process, picking up the full dumpster is the easiest. Call or email to let us know you are done, and we will come to get it anywhere within the Columbia area. Remember, we can pick up the dumpster without you being present as directed by you.

The waste is then taken to a facility for recycling as much of the load as possible before the rest is finally disposed of. Together, we can help Howard County reach its waste reduction goals and recycling goal of 75% by 2030.
