(20 feet long x 8 feet wide x 4 feet tall) – 8 pickup trucks
Our 20-yard dumpster is a popular choice in the Greater Houston area. It measures 20 feet long by 4 feet wide and 4 feet high. This generous capacity can handle up to 120 extra large trash bags full of waste. That’s the equivalent of 8 pickup truck loads of trash. It fits nicely on a home driveway, making it very convenient to use as you clean up from your project. On smaller lots, we can deliver the dumpster onto the street in front of your property. The weight limit on this size dumpster is 3 to 4 tons (6,000 to 8,000 pounds).

Permits are required by the City of Houston if your dumpster needs placement on a street or other public area. Private property placements do not require city permits. If your driveway is large enough to fit a 20 yard dumpster, then you can skip the permit process. However, we advise you to check with any HOAs that operate in your neighborhood to make sure placing the dumpster on your driveway won't violate any guidelines.
Electronics are strictly prohibited in all dumpster sizes. Items like electronics and batteries are classified as hazardous waste, primarily due to their toxic components that won't break down over time in a landfill. All electronic devices must be taken to specialized recycling plants for disposal.
A 20 yard dumpster is an ideal "middling" size. This means it can be used for both residential and small commercial projects. This dumpster size is bigger than average, so it would be best to reserve a dumpster like this for larger scale residential work or smaller scale commercial projects.
Any dumpster that is overfilled will not be picked up by our hauler. Doing so is against local laws, as debris can fall off the truck during transport. Once pickup has been rejected by us, you will then be charged a costly trip fee on top of your rental expenses.
