Standard dumpster sizes used by E&J Disposal Company

Whether you are undertaking a commercial remodeling project or a residential cleaning project, there are standard dumpster sizes that are ideal for all types of work. It’s important to understand what you need to complete a project, so you’re able to work efficiently.  

For instance, you don’t want to get halfway through a remodeling job to discover you’ll need more dumpster space to continue work. You also don’t want more space than you’ll need – it’s cumbersome and costly.  


At E&J Disposal Company, we offer 6, 10, 15, 20 & 30 yard dumpsters for all types of home and construction work.

Here’s what you can expect to fit in our standard dumpster sizes:

6 Yard Dumpster – 7′ wide x 12′ long x 2′ tall

While this is our most compact dumpster, it can still handle a surprising amount of waste for small jobs. It’s the equivalent of 2 of the “Dumpster Bags” you can get at the hardware store. This dumpster is ideal for small landscaping or remodeling jobs around the home, and can also hold clean brick or concrete.

This medium-size dumpster is popular with roofers, remodelers, and landscapers. It’s a full foot and-a-half taller than the 10 yard, so it’s ideal to maximize your load without taking up additional space on the site.  

It’s ideal for commercial sites, home cleanouts, or roof tear offs.
