What Size Dumpster Should I Get?




Bin There Dump That, in the OKC Metro, has 5 different sized dumpsters available. The 4 yard, 6 yard, 10 yard, 14 yard, and 20 yard dumpsters are perfect for small to large jobs. 

Smaller Dumpsters

Our roll-off dumpsters come in many different sizes. They are categorized by volume capacity. The 4 yard will hold 4 cubic yards of debris. To help visualize 4 cubic yards, there are other ways to measure. Many times, a 4 yard bin is used for small jobs that have debris that can be put in a wheelbarrow and then dumped in the dumpster. Some of this debris includes dirt, concrete, and tile from floors and showers. Depending on the size of wheelbarrow, the 4 yard dumpster can hold 36 to 56 wheelbarrows full of debris. If it is a 2 cubic yard wheelbarrow, then you can fit 56 full loads into a 4 yard dumpster. If a larger 3 cubic yard wheelbarrow is used, then the loads decrease to 36. 

As with the 4 yard dumpster, the 6 yard bin has a small footprint, not taking up much space, and is perfect for smaller jobs or heavy materials. The 6 yard is available for dirt, concrete, and brick disposal, as well as small renovations such as a bathroom remodel. 

Midsize Dumpster

Our midsize 10 yard bin is a nice step up in dumpster size for its many possible uses. This dumpster is 10 feet long, 7 feet wide, and 4 feet high. As with all Bin There Dump That bins, it is small enough to fit in a parking spot. But this bin with its 90 degree construction, is versatile for many projects. This bin is popular for small cleanouts, such as a single car garage cleanout. It is also used before and after moves, giving plenty of room for boxes, packing material, and those smaller household items. 


The 10 yard dumpster is the perfect size for kitchen remodels or small deck teardowns. The 10 yard bin can also be used for roof jobs, depending on the amount of shingles. This is typically a single layer roof of a smaller home, or around 25 squares of asphalt shingles. If there are more squares, you will need a 14 yard bin or a combination of bins. 

Larger Dumpsters 

Larger roof jobs need a larger bin for more shingles. The 14 yard bin can accommodate around 35 squares of shingles. We can help you with your roof job, providing the best size or even a combination of sizes, to get the job done quickly. Let us know the amount of squares, how many layers, or square footage of the structure, and we will help you with the most cost effective choice. 

The 14 yd bin is also good with larger cleanouts, such as several rooms. It is also a popular choice for remodels and renovations. If you are removing carpet in several rooms to replace with wood, a 14 yard dumpster is good for several, average sized rooms. 


If you have a larger renovation, such as the whole home, or if you need to replace carpet in a larger home of 3000 square feet or more, Bin There Dump That has a 20 yard dumpster. Our largest bin is used for double garage cleanouts, furniture disposal, and perfect for remodeling projects. 

It can be difficult to decide which bin to rent, but whether you have rented before, or never have rented a dumpster, Bin There Dump That can help you with the perfect size.
