Yard work and landscaping projects can be made more convenient with the rental of a yard waste dumpster that helps keep the space tidy while you work. The convenience of having the dumpster and its contents hauled off at the end of the project is very convenient. Bargain Bins explains what kind of yard waste dumpster you need.

Know how to choose the right size yard waste dumpster

Bargain Bins offers a range of yard waste dumpsters in sizes ranging from 3 to 20 cubic yards, depending on the scope of your project. With a dumpster at your premises, you can easily dispose of bushes, grass cuttings and tree sections when you remove them. Thus, our yard waste dumpsters are ideal for:

  1. Removal of shrubs
  2. Seasonal clean-ups
  3. Tree trimmings
  4. Overhauling the backyard

What if the garden waste dumpster is only half full?

Choosing the right size for your yard waste dumpster is the key consideration during the rental process. Paying for a dumpster with a capacity much more than what you need for your project can be a waste of money. At Bargain Bins, we make the process easy by renting by capacity. This way, you don’t have to worry about variable fees by weight or volume used, assuming you’ve stayed under the weight limit for the size dumpster you rented. Our customers really appreciate the hassle-free fixed costs without any surprise charges when their project is complete.

Common mistakes when choosing a yard waste dumpster capacity

Renting a yard waste dumpster is an easy process if you consider the right factors. Bargain Bins explains the common mistakes customers make.

Renting too large a dumpster

As mentioned previously, you may not always be able to judge how much waste will be created at the end of your yard project. Thus, to avoid overfilling, you may order a dumpster much larger than what you need, which can lead to slightly higher costs. However, if you do end up with a large dumpster that is only half full, take advantage of the situation and get rid of the extra clutter at your premises, or have your neighbors use some of that available space for a share of the cost!

Renting too small a dumpster

This may be even worse. Renting a dumpster that is too small results in overflowing and spillage of the waste. Dumpsters cannot be filled past the top of the container. And if you need a second dumpster, you may end up spending more than if you rented one larger one. 


When you rent a yard waste dumpster, the experts at Bargain Bins will explain how it works and maximum capacity for each size. Most dumpsters come with a painted or perforated line which represents how much it can be filled. Going above this line can lead to additional charges on your final invoice. In certain situations, dumpster rental services will not pick up the dumpster until the excess waste has been removed. This will result in an additional trip to the landfill, which will also incur a cost.

Space constraints

Always ensure there is adequate space for the yard waste dumpster as well as the truck for delivery and pickup. When you order your dumpster rental, explain to the professionals at the Bargain Bins if there are any issues with space such as low hanging branches or electric wiring.

Dumping the wrong waste

With a yard waste dumpster you have the freedom to throw nearly anything from the yard for disposal. However, liquid wastes or hazardous materials are a complete no-no. Below are some of the waste materials that cannot be disposed of in your rental dumpster:

  1. Gasoline
  2. Paint
  3. Household cleaning chemicals
  4. Tires
  5. Propane tanks
