Yard Dumpsters, Clean Load, and Commercial Dumpsters

The commonest dumpsters or dumpster rental are the 10,20,30 and 40 yards. It simply means the cubic yard space of a container. A 10-yard for instance simply means 10 cubic yards of space. While a 10-yard measure 12ft x 8ft x 4ft in length, height and width respectively, a 40-yard dumpster measures 22 x 8 x 8ft in length, height and width respectively. These dimensions may also depend on the dumpster company.

Clean load refers to a rented roll-off dumpster that is filled with a single type of recyclable material. For instance, this could be plastic, asphalt or concrete. A clean load makes it easier for the dumpster company to dump recycle wastes instead of dumping at the landfill.

Commercial dumpsters are rented dumpsters picked up trash collectors on a regular schedule. The dumpsters are covered and may offer 2-8 cubic yard containers. They are mostly hired by restaurants, grocery stores, and apartment complexes.
