What is the Smallest Dumpster I Can Rent?

​Dumpsters are not something you give a second thought to, but what many people don’t realize is that they are pretty much a necessity when doing any type of home renovation or home cleaning project. Without dumpsters, we wouldn’t be able to properly dispose of all the waste that we produce, and there’s usually a lot of it.

At our Hollywood depot, you can rent a vast number of dumpster sizes, from 10-yard roll-off dumpsters to 40-yard rear and front-loading ones, residential, commercial, or construction. Luckily all of these can be found at Hollywood Dumpsters and Haulers.


The cost of renting a dumpster varies depending on the size and your specific needs. For more affordable service, you can rent a $100 dumpster, but for larger projects you may need a dumpster that can hold upwards of 15 tons, which typically costs about $2,000 to rent.

When looking at the cost for a dumpster you need to remember that you will be paying for the dumpster along with any repairs to it and there will be a service charge of 10 to 15 per cent. While it seems like a lot of money, it’s also worth remembering that it going to be faster, easier and more than likely cheaper if you were to haul all your waste to the recycling center yourself. 



Roll-off dumpsters

These dumpsters are usually used for one-time use for large disposal needs during construction or home renovations. This type of dumpster usually has a door which makes loading debris and waste easier for construction workers. The sizes of roll-off dumpsters are as follows:

  • 10-yard dumpster – this is the smallest one you can get of this variety and is usually used for minor renovations and seasonal clean-ups.
  • 20-yard dumpster – most used for clearing office or commercial spaces.
  • 30-yard dumpster – used for large-scale renovations and construction sites.
  • 40-yard dumpster – this is the biggest one and is used for very large construction sites.

These are the smaller counterparts of the roll-off dumpster that are usually used for home and lower-scale construction. These are also ideal for businesses and organizations seeking a long-term solution for waste management. These range from as small as a 1-yard dumpster up to 8-yard ones.

  • 1-yard dumpster – this is the smallest one that is available and is perfect for small businesses generating an insignificant amount of waste.
  • 3-yard dumpster – this is ideal for businesses that need weekly collection on waste, usually small offices.
  • 5-yard dumpster – this is best for restaurants and small-scale health facilities that produce a moderate amount of waste.
  • 8-yard dumpster – the largest of the bunch, this is suitable for large-scale businesses and educational institutions that have their garbage collected regularly.


The answer to that question depends on what you will use the dumpster for.

Our team at  Hollywood Dumpsters and Haulers often find ourselves recommending that our customers opt for a 10-yard roll-off dumpster which has dimensions of 12 to 13 feet in length, 6.5 feet wide, and 4.5 feet tall. It can fit around 60 33-gallon trash bags and will have a maximum weight of 2 tons.  The cost will range between $200 – $500, depending on your location in Hollywood and length of rental.

If you’re looking for a dumpster that will serve a more commercial or large scale project, you will need to rent out a front or rear loading dumpster. The smallest one you can rent out would be the 1-yard one which has dimensions of 31 inches long, 77.5 inches wide, and 47.5 inches high.

This is ideal for one person to be able to move it through the standard 3-foot wide doors, service elevators, and sidewalks. The maximum weight capacity is at around 350 – 500 lbs. This small dumpster will end up costing you anywhere between $50 – $125 rent.

Renting out a dumpster can greatly increase your efficiency and help you dispose of your waste properly to avoid potential health hazards in your home or workplace. If you are confused about which dumpster is the right size for you, the people at Hollywood Dumpsters and Haulers will be able to help you out.
