Roll Off Rental: How To Choose The Right Container

A roll off rental can provide solutions for all kinds of clean up and waste disposal, whether it’s a garage clean-out, renovation project, or downsizing for a move. If you don’t have a clue about which size container would best fit your project, or even if you are unsure about how the rental process works, Sunshine Disposal can help you determine which size roll off rental container would be best for your needs, and answer all your questions.

There are two main considerations if you’re thinking about a roll off rental. The first is the type of waste you need to dispose of, and the second is the scale of your project. Choosing the correct dumpster size is important for keeping your project on track and on budget.

Dumpster sizes are reflected in cubic yards. As a general rule of thumb, one cubic yard is equal to 5 or 6 13-gallon trash bags.


Here’s a brief review of the total volume and dimensions of each roll off rental dumpster to help you decide.

This container can accommodate a load that is equivalent to about six pickup truck loads. This is most likely the best choice for a room remodel, garage cleanout, or fall clean up project.

If you need something a bit bigger than that, the 30-yard roll off rental measures 22′ long, 8′ wide, 6’6″ tall, and is suitable for debris from tearing down an outdoor shed or building a home addition.

This size dumpster will hold the equivalent of about 180 13-gallon trash bags. This is also a popular roll off rental container for both room cleanouts and landscaping debris removal solutions for many Kansas City homeowners.

Our largest roll off rental can haul just about anything – including plaster and drywall, wood, old cabinets and countertops, as well as carpets and other flooring materials.  

Of course, you must also consider the logistics, and where you want the roll off rental to be placed, as well as making sure there is enough access for our trucks to drop off and pick the container. Although we deliver to tight areas every day, sometimes that means you’ll need to order a smaller container to fit.
