Sizes and How Much They Hold
Dumpsters are used to move rejected waste from manufacturers, house cleaning and projects and it arrives in a mixture of dimensions. Temporary dumpster rentals are frequently called open top roll offs and come in 12, 15, 20 and 30 yard containers.
A dumpster can be permanent, temporary, open top or compactor type.
Household clean-ups, roofing projects, kitchen and bathroom renovations and construction sites often use a roll off dumpster.
Dumpster bins which arrive in smaller sizes such as 2, 4, 6 and 8 yd measures are more commonly used for permanent dumpsters which are usually located outside of companies for the collection of their daily garbage.
