We understand that determining which dumpster is right the scope of a large project can sometimes be difficult to assess. Leave it to the ZTERS team to help you understand the difference between Commercial/Front End dumpsters versus Roll-Off models. As well as the sizes that are available.

Conveniently named, a roll-off dumpster is an open top, rectangular unit that rolls off of the back end of the truck. These come in various sizes and weight limitations, and are ideal for handling scenarios where something is being built, renovated, or demolished. The debris in the roll-off dumpster is then taken off-site to be disposed of.

Find the right solution for your needs with our Roll-Off Dumpster Size Selector.

A commercial front-end dumpster has a closed, hinged top and is suitable for businesses that produce a large amount of waste regularly, but not enough that would require a roll-off dumpster. The commercial dumpster is picked up at the front of the truck, tipped and emptied into a larger container on the vehicle, and returned to the ground on-site.

Take a look at the questions below to help narrow down your search, and learn more about the standard residential and construction dumpster sizes that ZTERS provides:

Are you planning a relatively minor clean-out at your home or place of business?

Do you need to dispose of miscellaneous household items, manageable amounts of debris, or clear out a garage or extra room?

The 10 yard size is likely the best option for you – it’s perfectly equipped for small clean outs such as these. The dumpster dimensions are 3 1/2′ high, 8′ wide, and 13′ long.

Maybe you need to get rid of a large amount of yard waste from a landscaping project or are embarking on a substantial remodel?

If so, consider the 20 yard dumpster, which spans 3 1/2′ high, 8′ wide, and 22′ long. It’s one of the most popular choices for the homeowner while also being large enough to handle heavy renovations.

Need a waste-management solution for a medium to large clean-out?

The 30 yard option can take on larger projects such as these. Measuring 5 1/2′ high, 8′ wide, and 22′ long, it can handle both residential or lower-end commercial jobs.

Involved in large-scale construction work with a massive amount of refuse to discard?

Look no further than the 40 yard dumpster sized at 8′ high, 8′ wide, and 22′ long. This size is the largest we have available, with the capacity to hold an incredible amount of waste (approximately 25 cars worth)!
