Looking for a roll off dumpster for cleanup, construction, or demolition work?  Alpha Team KC  is the right place to find your roll off dumpster.

10 Yard Dumpster

A 10 yard dumpster can hold 10 cubic yards of waste. Common dumpster dimensions for a 10 yard dumpster are: 12 ft. long by 8 ft. wide by 4 ft. high (dumpster sizes and dimensions may vary from one company to another). There’s no perfect way to choose dumpster sizes, but a 10 yard dumpster may be appropriate for a small basement or garage cleanout; removing a 250 sq. ft deck; removing 1500 sq. ft. of single layer roof shingles; yard debris cleanup, or a small kitchen & bath remodeling job.

20 Yard Dumpster – Most Popular Size

A 20 yard dumpster holds 20 cubic yards of waste.  Alpha Team KC dumpster dimensions for a 20 yard dumpster are: 12 ft. long by 8 ft. wide by 6 ft. high. A 20 yard dumpster may be the right dumpster size for a large basement, attic, or garage cleanup; flooring and carpet removal for a large house; 300 to 400 square feet of deck removal; or 2500 to 3000 sq. ft. of single layer roof shingle removal.

30 Yard Dumpster – Alpha Team does not offer this size

A 30 yard dumpster holds 30 cubic yards of waste. Common dumpster dimensions for a 30 yard dumpster are: 22 ft. long by 8 ft. wide by 6 ft. high.  A 30 yard dumpster may be the right dumpster size for a major home addition; construction of a new home; demolition of a garage; or entire house window or siding replacement for a small to medium size home.  This size is not so popular.  The footprint of a 30 yard dumpster is so big, it really just gets in the way.  You may as well go with a 40 yard dumpster at this point.

40 Yard Dumpster – Alpha Team does not offer this size

A 40 yard dumpster holds 40 cubic yards of waste.  A 40 yard dumpster is a very large heavy steel box.  It tends to be higher impact on your driveway. Again, dumpster sizes and dumpster dimensions are not standardized, but common dumpster dimensions for a 40 yard dumpster are: 22 ft. long by 8 ft. wide by 8 ft. high. A 40 yard dumpster may be appropriate for window or siding replacement for a large home; commercial roof tear off; commercial cleanout; new construction or major addition; large amount of trash, paper, or cardboard.  At Alpha Team KC we recommend going with two 20 Yard dumpsters in most cases.
