10-Yard Roll-Off Dumpsters

The CWS 10-yard dumpster, nicknamed the "Lowboy" is 20 feet long, and measures more than 4 feet longer than most of our competitors 16-foot-long 10-yard dumpsters, thus our capacity is 20 percent greater. If you are comparison shopping for dumpster rentals, ask for the exact container dimensions to ensure you are comparing equal sizes.

The approximate overall dimensions of a 10-yard dumpster are: 20 feet long by 8 feet wide by 3 feet high, and 2 feet high on the inside of the bin. Please see the dumpster dimensions graphic, below. The CWS dumpster will typically fit in a standard residential driveway, however, only if the street access is adequate. Note that our delivery vehicle measures as large as a cement mixer truck, requiring a wide and clear area to perform the service. View our dumpster delivery video below to get an understanding of the area required to deliver a 10-yard dumpster. If you are unsure if the access is adequate, please contact CWS Customer Service.

Acceptable materials include: All types of "Inert" (meaning non-organic) materials including: concrete, dirt, asphalt, sand, brick, block, ceramic tile, clay tile, stucco (no wire mesh), plaster, etc. Should your 10-yard "lowboy" contain any non-inert material such as trash, plastic, wood, roots, or grass, an additional "contamination charge" may result. Please see the stickers on the side of the dumpster or view our Dumpster Tips page for proper loading instructions.

Maximum legal road weight limit is 12 tons or 24,000 pounds. Should your dumpster weight exceed the legal road limit of 12 tons, we reserve the right to refuse service. A "Trip Charge" will result and/or an additional "Overweight Fee" may be charged. Please see the stickers on the outside of the dumpster for loading instructions or view the Dumpster Tips page for more detailed loading instructions.

Dumpster Rental Period: Flexible. Typically, 3-5 days (depending on service demand).

Street Use Permit: For those who intend to place a CWS dumpster on a right-of-way or public street, an official street use permit will most likely be required. This type of permit will vary from city to city; therefore, contact your local municipality regarding specific requirements or contact our office for further details.
