Choosing the Right Dumpster Size: Pickup Truck Equivalents for Your Project

Deciding between a DIY cleanup with a pickup truck or a dumpster rental for your project? Understanding the size equivalence between our dumpsters and pickup trucks can guide you in making the best choice.

The bed of a full size standard pickup has dimensions of: 8′ long X 5.33′ wide X 1.5′ high. When loaded level full, a truck of this size will hold 2.5 cubic yards of material.

Dumpster Sizes and Their Pickup Truck Equivalents:

  1. 10-Yard Dumpster: Equivalent to 4 pickup truck loads. Ideal for small cleanouts or minor renovation projects.
  2. 15-Yard Dumpster: Holds about 6 pickup truck loads. Perfect for medium-sized projects, like larger cleanouts or flooring removals.
  3. 20-Yard Dumpster: Equals roughly 8 pickup trucks. Suitable for substantial home renovation tasks or large-scale cleanups.
  4. 30-Yard Dumpster: Comparable to 12 pickup truck loads. Great for major renovation projects or construction sites.
  5. 40-Yard Dumpster: Holds the equivalent of 16 pickup trucks. Best for the largest projects, including commercial cleanouts or extensive remodels.

Additional Considerations for Choosing Between DIY and Dumpster Rentals:

  1. Location of Dumps: Consider how far you need to travel to the nearest dump. Longer distances increase time and fuel costs.
  2. Material Restrictions at Dumps: Be aware of what materials your local dump will accept to avoid complications.
  3. Dump Usage Limits: Some dumps restrict how many times you can dispose of materials per day, which could delay a DIY project.
  4. Labor and Time Investment: Evaluate the effort involved in loading, driving, unloading, and repeat trips for DIY disposal.
  5. Project Timeline: For longer projects, having a dumpster on-site can be more convenient than frequent trips to the dump.
