Considerations for Demolition Dumpster Service
One of the most important aspects of the demolition job and dumpster partnership is making sure both sides can keep pace with each other. A lot of large and commercial demolition projects require special attention to manage the different types of waste materials that are being removed from the job.
Different Materials go to Different Places
redbox+ Dumpsters can provide multiple roll-off containers and waste hauling services to separate demolished materials as needed. For example, contractors managing demolitions may have a concrete-only dumpster because concrete can be ground down and re-used.
Here are some of the materials that most often need a dedicated demolition dumpster:
- Rebar and other metal
- Landfill waste
Estimating Demolition Dumpster Size
The size of dumpster needed for demolition jobs varies based on whether it’s a residential or commercial project, how much and what is being demolished, and how heavy the discarded materials are. In our experience, a 30-yard dumpster is usually sufficient for demolishing one or two rooms, and a 40-yard dumpster is better for larger demolition projects.
Here’s a rough breakdown of dumpster size and capacity that may help:
- 20-Yard Dumpster = 6 Pickup Loads
- 30-Yard Dumpster = 9 Pickup Loads
- 40-Yard Dumpster = 12 Pickup Loads
