Roll off dumpster sizes for rent in Chicago Area

Choosing to include a roll off dumpster in your project, whether it’s a home remodel, reroofing project or a small or large clean out of the home or garage, is a smart decision on many levels. Most of our customers at A City Dumpsters enjoy the convenience of having a dumpster on site where they can quickly and safely dispose of rubbish.

Roll off dumpster sizes vary, which means you need to choose wisely to ensure your project runs as smoothly as possible. At A City Dumpsters, we have dumpster sizes for rent that will be a perfect match for your project

What are the different roll-off dumpster sizes you can rent?

The most common question home or property owners have when renting a dumpster is “what are the different dumpster sizes?” Every project is different and A City Dumpsters carries the sizes that are a good match for just all of them. We offer units in the following sizes: 6, 10, 15, 20 and 30 yards.

The material you are disposing of will be a good guide for helping you what size dumpster you rent. For example, landscaping jobs where dirt, cement and bricks are being disposed of, you will need to rent one of the two smallest dumpsters, as they are designed for dense/heavy materials. For projects that include large volumes and/or bulky items, you’ll need a larger unit.

Roll-off dumpster rental sizes comparison

When considering roll off dumpster size comparisons, floor space is one factor that matters. For example, the smallest dumpster, a 6-yard unit, only takes up a space 12 feet long by 6 feet wide. By comparison, the largest dumpster takes up a space that is 18 feet long and 6 feet wide. If you’ve got limited space to fit a dumpster, you must consider the area each different sized unit will take up.
