Is A 15-Yard Dumpster Enough For Your Home Renovation Project?


Are you moving? Selling your home? Planning a home renovation project? Or just cleaning house?


We have a 15-yd dumpster perfect for these small jobs. You can throw away any junk or trash you may have laying around. But you may be wondering what size dumpster you need. A 15-yard dumpster is a popular choice for many home renovation projects (it holds about five standard truck beds’ worth of stuff) but is it enough for your specific project?


15 cubic yard dumpster


Here are some factors to consider:


Size of the Project

The size of your home renovation project is a key factor in determining whether a 15-yard dumpster is sufficient. For smaller projects, such as updating a bathroom or replacing kitchen cabinets, a 15-yard dumpster may be more than enough. However, for larger projects, such as a whole-house renovation, a larger dumpster may be necessary. Our “How many truck loads fit in a dumpster?” page has some details that may help you.


Type of Materials You Are Dumping

The type of materials you will be disposing of also affects the amount of space you need in a dumpster. Materials such as drywall and concrete take up more space than lighter materials such as wood or plastic. If your project involves a lot of heavy materials, you may need a larger dumpster than a 15-yard one.


Frequency of Dumpster Emptying

Another factor to consider is how often you'll need to empty the dumpster. A 15-yard dumpster can hold a significant amount of waste, but if you're generating a lot of waste quickly, you may need to have it emptied more frequently. This may be inconvenient if the dumpster is in a location that is difficult to access.




Local Regulations

Finally, it's important to consider any local regulations that may affect the size of dumpster you can rent. Some areas have restrictions on the size or placement of dumpsters, so it's important to check with your HOA or code compliance before putting a dumpster in front of your house


A 15-yard dumpster can be a good choice for many home renovation projects, but it's important to consider the size of your project, the type of materials you'll be disposing of, and any local regulations before making a decision. At Southern Roll Off Dumpster Rental, available sizes are:
