This dumpster will fit through 3-foot wide doors, regular freight elevators, and standard walkways. It is also large enough to contain any amount of landscaping debris or clean out items.

Most companies will charge around $100-$300 for delivery and pickup of a one-yard dumpster. Depending on the company and how far they must drive to pick up your dumpster, this can take anywhere from 30 minutes to over an hour. Most companies will call ahead to let you know what time they will be by for delivery.
Once the dumpster is delivered, you should check the condition inside. If there are any problems with the dumpster, report these issues immediately after delivery so they can be fixed before it starts to smell. If there are no issues, fill the dumpster up with your debris and call them when you're done.
Dumpsters can be rented from companies across the country.

The dimension of a recycling dumpster is usually about the same as a regular dumpster, but it can be any shape you need to fit in your yard. These containers come in different sizes and shapes. At Container Store we offer a selection of recycling dumpsters for our customers to choose from. We also have a large selection of regular dumpsters for any project that requires a single-use container.
Dumpster sizes are measured by their volume or capacity (the amount of trash they can hold). Regular dumpsters have capacities of 0-10,000 cubic yards (914-3598 m3); large dumpsters have capacities of 10,000-40,000 cubic yards (914-3598 m3). There are also medium dumpsters that are available in some cities; they hold about 2250 cubic yards (200-2700 m3).
There are two main types of dumpsters: roll-off and front-end loaders.
The outer dimensions of a dumpster are normally defined in feet, while the overall volume is measured in cubic yards. To figure out how big a dumpster is, multiply its outside measurements in feet (length, breadth, and height) by its volume in cubic feet. Then double that figure by 27 to convert cubic feet to cubic yards. For example, a 40-foot-long dumpster with a width of 20 feet and a height of 10 feet has a volume of 1200 cubic feet.
There are 8 square feet per cubic foot. So, 4 square feet per cubic yard. Multiply the dumpster's volume by 4 to get its total square footage. Now, divide that number by 100 to find its average surface area. This is how many square feet it will take up when full.
The length of a dumpster is also called its "depth" or "height". It measures from the top of one wheel well to the top of the next, or to the roof of the vehicle if there is no roof on the truck.
Dumpsters can be rented from any home improvement store or specialty rental company. If you want to recycle your dumpster, most companies will allow this for an additional cost. Be sure to check with each company before you rent anything out.
