Which Size is Best?

In the world of waste dumpster rental, one size does not fit all. With projects ranging from house decluttering to full-scale construction job cleanup, choosing the right sized dumpster can be a bit of a challenge, especially if one is unsure how much trash will be generated during the course of the job. 

Luckily, we’re here to help you determine which garbage dumpster rental is best for your needs. Let’s take a look at each size in turn and the jobs to which they’re best suited.


The lowboy dumpster is so named because it is no higher than an average person’s waistline. At 15’ x 7.5’ x 3.5’, this dumpster is our smallest but is designed for a very specific purpose. Your heaviest construction & destruction (C&D) waste is destined for the lowboy.

C&D trash is typically categorized as:

  • Broken concrete
  • Sod
  • Rocks
  • Tiles
  • Steel
  • Bricks
  • Dirt
  • Sand
  • Drywall
  • Insulation
  • Framing materials
  • Roofing
  • Landscaping
  • All construction materials

One might wonder why the lowboy, with its load equivalent of 2-3 pick-up trucks, is meant for trash like this. The low walls of this particular waste dumpster rental are designed for easy loading and unloading of the loose, heavy material and can work in tandem with other construction equipment like a digger or backhoe.


Thinking about spring cleaning? The 15-yard garbage dumpster rental was meant for you. Perfect for virtually any mid-size residential or commercial work (moving offices?), this dumpster holds 4-5 pick-up trucks’ worth of trash. That’s approximately 8 tons of refuse!

As with any dumpster that we offer, Western Elite can guarantee same-day delivery and pick up with as little as 4-hours notice. Remember, unless you rent the lowboy, no C&D waste can end up in our larger dumpsters.


Looking to clean out 50-years-worth of stuff from grandma’s basement? Or perhaps you have some remodeling to do and need to get rid of old cabinetry. The 6’-tall, 30-Yard dumpster was designed for work such as this. With so much space for you to use, you can knock out any mid-to-large-scale project in no time. 

And what if you need to keep the dumpster for longer than a day? That’s no problem at all. Western Elite can work with you to reserve your dumpster for up to 7 days, if necessary. 


The 40-yard bin is the king of our garbage dumpster rentals. Standing at 8 feet tall, this dumpster can carry the equivalent of 10 pick-up truckloads! A hauling potential like this is what has made the 40-yard container our most popular waste dumpster rental. 

What exactly is this type of dumpster best suited for? As you might expect, it is perfect for holding lots of lightweight trash that is cumbersome to transport, like debris from a large home renovation project or trimmings from trees and shrubs.
