Check Out Our Small Dumpster Sizes for Residential Cleanout Projects

Are you preparing for a home renovation, attic cleanout, or estate sale? These home projects can create a lot of heavy, bulky debris that you’ll need to dispose of once the project is completed.

You could let the waste pile up until the end of the project, but then you have to figure out what to do with it. Instead, you can rent a roll-off dumpster that will make managing all of that waste much simpler.

Gainsborough Waste offers small dumpster sizes that are perfect for a wide variety of home projects in the Greater Houston area. Keep reading to explore why you should rent a dumpster and the typical roll-off dumpster sizes.

What Is a Roll-Off Dumpster?

You’ve likely seen a roll-off dumpster somewhere in your neighborhood or driving around the Houston area. They’re rectangular, heavy-duty waste containers you often see at construction sites, but they can also be used for residential projects.

These bins are tough and rugged. They have an open top to quickly load trash and other debris, making them ideal for remodeling, renovating, or demolishing a building or specific room. In our industry, we call them “roll-off dumpsters” because they roll off the back of a truck that delivers the dumpster to your location.

When we deliver a dumpster to your location, we will work hard to protect your property and find a good spot to place the dumpster so that it doesn’t interfere with your usual home activity.

Our Options for Small Dumpster Rentals

Roll-off dumpsters come in various sizes, meaning there’s a perfect size for whatever project you’re working on. Dumpsters are sized according to how many cubic yards of waste they hold. For residential projects, we typically recommend one of the following two sizes of dumpsters:

15-Yard Dumpsters

A 15-yard dumpster is suitable for hauling drywall, household junk, and renovation debris generated during a room remodel project. It holds an average of 1-2 tons or 2,000-4,000 pounds of waste. This is the ideal size for residential projects, including:

  • Bedroom remodels
  • Attic cleanouts
  • Garage expansion
  • Yard clean-ups 
  • Brick and concrete disposal

Plus, this dumpster size makes getting rid of old appliances and furniture quick and stress-free. We can handle almost any type of non-hazardous waste generated at your residence.

20-Yard Dumpsters

If your project is a little bigger, a 20-yard dumpster may better suit your needs. This size accommodates roofing materials, such as after tearing down shingles. With this size dumpster in your yard, cleaning up after purging unwanted items and remodeling your home couldn’t be easier. A 20-yard dumpster accommodates various jobs, including:

  • Roof removal and disposal
  • Total large home cleanout
  • Large yard cleanup
  • Light demolition projects

Typically, a 20-yard dumpster can hold between two and three tons or 4,000 to 6,000 pounds. The dumpster weight limit depends on the scope of your project and what materials you need to dispose of.
