20 Cubic Yards – 16′ Long x 8′ Wide x 4.5′ Tall

main features

If you’re taking on a decent-sized project that produces a large amount of waste, this is the all-in-one dumpster perfect for you. Whether you’re planning on tackling a full-scale remodel, a complete property clean-up, or need a bunch of materials removed, we have you covered. Our 20 yard dumpsters are 16’ long, 8’ wide, and 4.5’ tall. You can easily fit over 100 garbage bags, which is roughly equivalent to 6 pickup truck loads!

All of our dumpsters come readily equipped with metal stepping posts on the side and a rear hatch to open the back of the bin. Low-cut sides are also present in this bin, making the disposal of materials that much easier. It shouldn’t be a struggle to load your waste — you already have enough to worry about!



20 yard dumpsters are extremely versatile and can be used in a plethora of different ways. Whether you’re a contractor, roofer, landscaper, or somewhere in between, these dumpsters are an excellent choice to help you finish your projects. Some of the more popular uses of these dumpsters are:

Roofing and shingle removal. It can be hard to estimate just how many shingles and various other components you will end up with after removing a roof. Typically, it’s more than you would expect, so having a dumpster that can accommodate that uncertainty is crucial.

Concrete and asphalt removal. Concrete and asphalt can take up a lot of space and can be quite heavy. Removing these two quickly and easily can alleviate a lot of stress and eliminate some headaches.

Junk removal. Junk can accumulate quickly and is notorious for taking up loads of space. Having a dumpster that can accommodate all kinds of junk, and a lot of it can make your life a whole lot easier. You never know what you may find when you’re cleaning out a property.

In most cases, it’s best to place these dumpsters either directly on the job site, or very close to it. We will work with you to determine the best locations on-site. Our goal is to avoid having the dumpster(s) block normal traffic flows and remain discrete. We’ll also help you establish which areas of land are the most suitable for the dumpster. Placing them on sturdy ground is essential to avoiding any problems when the time comes to remove the dumpsters.

You can also place a dumpster on the street, providing that it is properly marked with signage and a perimeter is made using traffic cones. There should be good visibility from both directions to reduce the risk of accidents occurring. If you have questions about the exact measurements of our 20 yard dumpsters, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’ll do everything in our power to accommodate your requests.
