Guide to Roll Off Dumpster Rentals in Florida
Roll-off dumpster rentals are great for saving time and money for projects around the home, business, and construction site. To help you find the perfect rental for your project, here’s everything you need to know about roll-off dumpster rentals in Florida.
How big of a roll-off dumpster do I need?
Naturally, this is everyone’s first question regarding dumpster rentals. The right dumpster size for your project depends on how big your project is and what kind of items you’ll be throwing away. Consider the volume the items will take in the dumpster. Couches, tables, and beds will take more room, but not necessarily more weight.
Most projects can be accomplished with a 10, 15, or 20-yard dumpster. To help you choose the right size, here’s the ideal use for each dumpster rental.
What can I fit in a 20-yard dumpster?
A 20-yard dumpster is an ideal size for small to medium-sized projects. It’s 20 feet long, 7 feet wide, and 4 feet tall, fitting comfortably in most driveways. If you’re having trouble visualizing just how much a 20-yard dumpster can hold, it is roughly equivalent to 6 pick-up truck loads.
20-yard dumpster projects:
- Driveway and slab removals
- Retaining wall teardowns
- Home or business remodels
- Demolition projects
How much can fit in a 10-yard dumpster? A dumpster with 10 cubic yards of volume is ideal for smaller items that are low volume or collapsible. Avoid using this size for large items like dressers or couches.
How much can fit in a 15-yard dumpster? This size is more suitable for large and awkward items, including couches, beds, dressers, tables, and chairs. A 15-yard dumpster leaves some flexibility with smaller projects and is just enough to get the job done for medium-sized projects.
How much does it cost to rent a dumpster in Florida?
Dumpster rental prices in Florida largely depend on the dumpster size, dump cost, and rental duration. If you need specialized disposal services for hazardous materials, this can also add to the cost of a rental.
How much is a 20-yard roll-off?
- $575 for 10 days includes up to 4 tons /$75 per ton over that
- $875 monthly with a $300/dump 4-ton max $75/ton over that
- $399 for 2 days includes up to 4 tons $75/ton over that
Now you might be wondering, how much weight can you put in a 20-yard dumpster? It is possible to exceed the 4-ton limit but is unlikely unless you dispose of low-volume materials with a high weight. Four tons is usually more than enough for construction debris, yard waste, household waste, and bulky furniture.
The main thing to consider for cost is the duration of your rental. Ultimately, using a dumpster rental will cost less than using a waste disposal service, even if you use a pick-up truck. Without a nearby dumpster, frequent trips to your local dump can also cause delays in your project. Be sure to consider this when balancing the cost of your rental with the needs of your project.
How does a 20-yard roll-off dumpster rental work?
A roll-off dumpster is called a “roll-off” because it uses wheels to roll on and off a truck. This allows for easy drop-off and pick-up of the dumpster, so all you have to worry about is filling it up. Here’s what you need to know about 20-yard roll-off dumpster rentals.
Flat rate and no hidden fees
Humpty Dump Containers uses a flat rate with no hidden fees. Delivery and pick-up are also free, meaning there will be no surprises on your bill. All you need to do is plan how long you will need the dumpster rental, and the flat rate will apply as long as you stay under the 4-ton limit.

How much concrete can I fit in a dumpster?
Concrete is low in volume but high in weight. A typical 10-yard dumpster is enough to surpass the 4-ton max allowed by local dumps in Florida when disposing of concrete. For projects that require extensive concrete removal, it’s best to discuss your options with your dumpster rental company.
Thank you for pointing out that most projects can be accomplished with a 10 to 20-yard dumpster. My wife and I are wanting to purchase a small house so that we can gut it and completely renovate it. We will have to find a dumpster company that can help us keep our mess to a minimum.
