You’ve finally decided on your residential landscaping, renovation, or cleaning project, and are ready to kick off the project. Before you do, you’ll need to figure out what size of junk removal bin you need.
This might seem like common sense, but a lot of homeowners either over or underestimate their disposal needs; come up too small and you won’t have enough capacity (i.e. extra charges), too much, and you end up spending more than you should have.

While determining the proper size bin is not rocket science, it can help save you quite a bit of hassle and added expense, two things every homeowner can definitely appreciate. With that in mind, let’s get right to it shall we?!

Solving the Bin Size Problem Once and for All

The important thing to remember is what goes into most home remodeling and renovation projects. The most common materials disposed of include drywall, wood, and the occasional appliance, that is if the individual is updating their kitchen or bathroom.

These products are typically lightweight, but quite bulky in their dimensions. This is why at Red Bins, we recommend a bin with a minimum length of 14 yards. If you have plans to perform landscaping work, you’ll find yourself facing an opposite problem, soil and concrete are not bulky, but the amount you’ll be disposing of could quickly fill a 14-yard container.

This depends of course on the extent of the work you’re doing. For some homeowners, a compact, 4-yard will do just fine. If you’re unsure of how much space you need, don’t worry. With our online cubic yard calculator, you’ll know exactly what container will do the job for your particular project.

Convenience Where it Counts

Although the height of our 4-yard bin is only 3 ⅓ feet, it can still fill up upwards of a ton of material. Red Bins provides flat rates for these and our 14-yard bins, and all are safe for placement on concrete and asphalt. Simply tell us when you need your bin delivered, and we’ll drop it off.

Every bin is equipped with swinging doors that keep you from needing to lift heavy materials overhead; we try to make our disposal services as convenient for our customers as possible. You don’t have to be present for the delivery either.
