Roll-Off Container Sizes: How Big is a Cubic Yard?

Large disposal vessels are typically measured in cubic yards, but how big is a ten-yard container? Because a yard is equal to three feet, you can envision one square yard as a cube that is three feet wide, three feet long, and three feet tall. Cubic yards are a unit of volume and may not give any indication of the actual dimensions of the vessel, so the length, width, and height of your roll-off container may not be what you think. While there are some standard dimensions for ten-, sixteen-, and twenty-yard containers, you should talk with the experts at Lehnhoff’s Supply about the dimensions of the container you want.

A Bigger Roll-Off Container is Better

While it is true that less is more in many situations, renting a roll-off container is not one of those instances. Renting a vessel that is too small can result in delays, the use of another unit, or other consequences that are time-consuming and costly. When you are selecting a size, always err on the side of too big. 

What Can Go Into a Roll-Off Container?

Lehnhoff’s Supply offers roll-off containers and disposal for four types of waste: clean dirt, clean lawn debris, clean concrete/asphalt, and construction/trash debris. Because these materials must be treated differently upon disposal, you must take care to only load a container with the materials for which it has been designated. If you are still not sure what type of roll-off container you need for your project in Joppa, give our team a call. Our professionals are ready to help you!
