Benefits of a 15-yard dumpster

There are several benefits of a 15-yard dumpster, including:

  • Ample Space

    Perfect Size for Mid-Sized Projects: A 15-yard dumpster is an ideal size for many residential or small-scale commercial projects such as a minor kitchen renovation, bathroom remodel, or a sizable garage cleanout.

  • Versatility

    Capable of holding various types of waste, from construction debris to yard waste and regular household junk, a 15-yard dumpster offers flexibility.

  • Cost-effective

    The 15-yard dumpster offers a substantial cost benefit, as it’s more affordable than larger dumpsters but provides ample space for moderate amounts of waste.

  • Convenient

    The 15-yard dumpster’s adequate size will prevent frequent trips to the landfill, saving you time and effort.

  • Compliance

    Utilizing a properly sized dumpster ensures compliance with local regulations and waste management guidelines. A 15-yard dumpster is typically within the size limits permitted by most municipalities for waste disposal.

  • Time-saving

    With a larger dumpster, you can reduce the number of trips required to empty the container, saving you time and effort. This allows you to focus more on your project and less on waste removal logistics.

  • Improved Safety

    By keeping all the waste from your project in one place, you can maintain a cleaner, safer worksite and prevent the risk of injury from scattered debris.

  • Environmental Responsibility

    By ensuring all your waste is appropriately disposed of, and not left to litter the environment, you’re taking part in responsible waste management.

How Big Is a 15-Yard Dumpster and How Much Can It Hold?

The standard dimensions of a 15-yard dumpster are 14 feet in length, 4.5 feet in height, and 8 feet in width. Having a smaller footprint than either the 30 or 40-yard roll-off sizes, these dumpsters are often the best option for homeowners, business owners, and contractors who need a larger size roll-off but have a limited amount of space to work with.

A 15-yard dumpster can hold 15 cubic yards of waste, which is roughly the volume of 80 contractor-sized trash bags or 5 pickup truck loads or 5,000 to 6,000 pounds. 

How Much Space Will a 15-Yard Dumpster Take Up on Your Property?

The delivery team will need a space that is about 60 feet wide and 11 feet long for drop-off and pickup. The dumpster itself requires a height clearance of 21 feet, but can easily fit on most driveways or construction sites.

How Much Does It Cost to Rent a 15-Yard Dumpster?

In the Chicago area, renting a 15-yard dumpster typically costs between $480.00 and $625.00. However, the total price largely depends on your location, the duration of the rental period, the type and weight of the waste you have to remove, and fuel rates.
