Hopefully the following information can help you make a final decision that works best for your unique needs.  

What To Put In Your Dumpster

Unless you’re dealing with hazardous or dangerous material, you can put your yard scraps into the bin.

So, you can throw out topsoil, plant material, gravel, bricks, concrete and other landscape items. Before renting a dumpster, you might want to walk through your yard to see what all needs to go, which will also help you figure out what size bin you need for the job.

Choosing a Size for a Landscaping Project

Remember- dumpsters can only be filled to the point where the material is filled to the top of the dumpster walls. Ideally, a tarp is put over top of the bin in order to transport it so it’s important to avoid overfilling. 

Pay attention to the sizing of your dumpster rental. There are many sizes available that range from 4 yards to 40 yards. A 4-yard dumpster can hold 4 cubic yards of clean-fill and likewise, a 40-yard one can hold 40 cubic yards. For a larger landscaping project, we recommend a dumpster size of 20 or 30 yards depending on how large and what you’re planning on putting into the dumpster.

Mixed Waste Bins Vs. Clean Fill Bins

A mixed waste bin is your traditional rental dumpster bin. Any material is accepted in a mixed waste bin, as long as it follows general guidelines and does not contain any hazardous materials. On the other hand, a clean fill bin is a bin that contains only one of either soil/sod, gravel, broken up concrete, block, asphalt, or bricks. If any other material is found in the bin, it will be considered a solid load. When carrying out a landscaping job, you may find yourself making use of clean fill bins.
