Best Type of Dumpster for C&D
We have both rectangular and tub-style dumpsters in our inventory. Both styles work well for construction, demolition and excavation projects. Smaller sizes (20 or 30-yards) are best for collecting and hauling dense materials like brick or concrete.
The tub-style bottom works well for collecting rock, concrete, brick and heavier materials. This style is also easier to empty, and is nestable, meaning we can transport multiple empty dumpsters on a single truck to your job site. If you require several dumpsters, this is the best option to consider.
Best Sizes for C&D
The dumpster size that is best for your project depends on the waste, debris and materials you’ll be disposing of in the dumpster. In general, we recommend both the 20-yard and 30-yard capacity dumpsters for most construction projects.
20-yard dumpsters are required for collecting and hauling heavy and bulky materials like asphalt, brick, concrete and rock. These dumpsters hold 20 cubic yards of debris and are approximately 22 feet long by 7 feet wide and are 4 feet high.30-yard dumpsters hold 30 cubic yards of debris and are approximately 22 feet long by 7 feet wide and are 5 feet high.
We do have 40-yard dumpsters available, but care must be taken to ensure these dumpsters are not overloaded which can be costly and expensive to haul. 40-yard dumpsters are 22 feet long by 7 feet by by 7 feet high.
Types of Jobs that Require Dumpsters:
- Excavations to remove dirt and organic waste such as trees or scrub brush
- Construction of apartment complexes, libraries, airplane hangars, resorts and warehouses
- Commercial renovations
- Cleaning up and removing debris after natural disasters affecting large buildings or complexes
Long-term construction projects require multiple hauls. Your project will never be delayed and you will not sacrifice time waiting for a full dumpster to be emptied and returned. We can provide several pickups per day or each week depending on your needs and how frequently dumpsters are filled.
Construction Debris Recycling
Typical construction debris — wood, metals, plastics, paper and cardboard — can be collected separately from other waste and hauled to an energy plant or recycling center.
We can also collect and haul concrete to be recycled. Recycling concrete is an attractive alternative to disposing of the debris in a landfill, because it is environmentally friendly and concrete can be reused in a variety of ways. Concrete pieces are upcycled into asphalt, new concrete, or even used to prevent erosion.
