Open Top Dumpster

Loading a dumpster should be an easy process. Especially on a job where time is money. One benefit of the 20 yard container is the shorter sides. When compared with a 30 yard dumpster and a 15 yard dumpster, the open top 20 yard is the perfect height for commercial or residential construction sites. The sides are convenient for loading small items from residential construction sites by hand, while also making it easy to load large construction debris on a commercial site with a skid steer. Keep your team productive by removing debris that could slow down their progress.

When you need a waste disposal company in Floyd, Clark or Harrison County that can handle anything that may arise during your residential or commercial construction project, A1 Porta Potty is your waste removal solution. We can also provide you with the most well maintained porta potties in Jeffersonville, Clarksville, New Albany, and all of Southern Indiana.

Contractor Dumpster Rental

20 yard dumpsters are commonly found on job sites in Southern Indiana. A 20 yard roll off is a middle of the road dumpster size. It is not too large and not too small. The best use of a medium size dumpster is for residential use and small construction projects.

Dumpster for Shingles

Another common use for the 20 yard dumpster is disposing of shingles. Roofers and roofing contractors typically rent dumpsters from garbage disposal companies to make it easy to haul off the shingles they remove from the home. With this size dumpster, you have to consider the weight of the shingles, tar paper and possible plywood that will be removed and thrown in the roll off container. A bundle of shingles weighs anywhere from 50 to 85 lbs. The next step up is a square. Which weights approximately 300 to 400 lbs. If the roof you are replacing takes 10 square of shingles, that is 4000 lbs, or 2 ton. A 20 yard dumpster from A1 Porta Potty is allotted 4 tons of debris.

How much will a 20 Yard Dumpster hold?

The waste management service industry uses a number of nomenclatures and acronyms that can be confusing to individuals not into garbage collection. First, we need to take a look at how dumpsters are classified. This starts with the industry term know as cubic yards.

A 20 Yard dumpster holds just that, 20 cubic yards of material. A cubic yard is a unit of volume. One cubic yard is how much material you can fit in a space one yard wide by one yard deep by one yard high. Think of one cubic yard as a trash can 3' x 3' x 3'. Now put 10 of those 3' trash cans together and you have the volume of a 10 yard dumpster.

Now lets plug the dimensions of our small dumpster into our equation. The dumpster measures 8' x 22' x 4.5'. Lets do our high school math and multiply these from left to right. You get 792 cubic ft. Now we must turn this cubic ft number into cubic yards. To do that you now have to divide the number from our first equation by 27. This gives you 29. The cubic yards of material our dumpster will hold. Now you are asking, where did that 27 come from? There are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard.

Easy enough, right? Now all you have to do is practice.
