At Value Roll Offs in Chattanooga, we’ve been working with home and business owners, trying to help them identify the right size dumpster for their project. While we usually are very accurate in predicting the right size, many clients want to start by doing a bit of research themselves before ordering. However, before you go ahead and start researching the perfect size dumpster for your project, it is essential to outline the scope and nature of the project. For instance, if you’re cleaning out your garage, it stands to reason that you’ll be discarding a lot of household junk into the dumpster. But the key question here is, how large is this junk going to be? Will it be dozens of long pipes, a dining room table that’s no longer used and car parts? If that’s the case, you need to choose a dumpster that will accommodate these items.

Anyone undertaking a renovation project will need to discard tiles, drywall, maybe a door or two, and some other stuff. Most of these items can fit nicely into one of our 10-yard dumpsters. However, you might need the 20-yard dumpster if the entire home is being renovated.

If you have never hired a dumpster in Chattanooga before, we’ve listed the sizes available along with a short description of the type of projects they are best suited to. All measurements are in cubic yard sizes.

The 10-yard dumpster

Dimensions: 6-feet wide by 12-feet long by 4-feet tall

It is by far the smallest size dumpster you can hire, making it perfect for numerous DIY projects, including spring and yard cleaning. It can also hold a bit of debris, usually the amount generated during a small renovation project.

In a nutshell, the 10-yard roll-off dumpster is perfect for:


DIY spring cleaning projects


It is perfect for discarding old furniture, clothes, and debris


It can easily contain debris and drywall from a small renovation project


The 20-yard dumpster

Dimensions: 8-feet in width by 20-feet long by 4-feet tall

Now, if you’re undertaking a slightly larger project or suspect you’ll need a large dumpster, the 20-yard dumpster is the next size up! It’s twice the size of the 10-yard dumpster, which means it can hold a lot more waste.

In a nutshell, the 20-yard dumpster is perfect for:


Discarding mainly debris from a floor or roof replacement project


Discarding items that are leftover from a bedroom addition or perhaps a living room addition project


It can easily house items from a large deck and patio replacement job


You can also use it to discard old furniture like a couch, center table etc.

The 30-yard dumpster

Dimensions: 8-feet in width by 22-feet by 6-feet tall

The 30-yard dumpster is a good choice for anyone undertaking a large project. I can also accommodate the debris from two small projects like bathroom and kitchen remodeling. If you’re building a new small home, perhaps the 30-yard dumpster would be a good choice too.

The 40 yard dumpster

Dimensions: 8-feet wide by 22-feet long by 8-feet tall

It is the largest dumpster and is often used by many large commercial contractors. It is large enough to accommodate debris from a large-scale building project. That said, it is possible to order multiple 40-yard dumpsters for more extensive multi-storey demolition and construction projects. The only drawback, perhaps if you can call it, is that you need to find a suitable location.
