Our Most Popular Size for Yard Waste

The 20-yard dumpster is the most commonly used size for landscaping debris disposal, as it is designed to handle 2-3 tons or 4,000-6,000 pounds of material. This size is ideal for projects like tree limb removal or hauling general yard waste, as it can accommodate a significant amount of debris without exceeding the weight limit.

The cost of a 20-yard dumpster typically falls between $300 and $775, depending on the location. However, prices may vary outside of this range depending on the specific location and other factors.

If you're unsure which size dumpster is right for your project, our range of roll-off container sizes is built to handle any size project. We can help you choose the best dumpster for your needs and budget.

What to Consider When Renting a Dumpster for Yard Waste

Laws Vary by Location

Yard waste cannot be disposed of in municipal landfills. When loading a dumpster with yard waste and inert debris, it is important to keep municipal wastes (such as trash and building materials) separate. This makes it easier for us to transport the waste to the appropriate processing facility.

Before renting a yard waste dumpster, it is recommended to research local environmental regulations to ensure compliance.

Other Disposal Options to Consider

Compost When Possible

Composting is a double-edged win, eliminating dead leaves and clippings from your garden while simultaneously creating valuable organic compost. While you can purchase this product at a garden store, why not take advantage of the free option by learning to compost your garden waste?

To begin viewing yard waste as compost, it's essential to understand the composting process. Composting involves piling up brown waste (such as dead, dried leaves) and green waste (like vegetable peelings and spent tomato vines) and providing them with the necessary sun, water, and air to decompose rapidly. The resulting product can be incorporated into garden soil to enhance its texture and add nutrients.

Learn Before you Burn

Burning yard waste can be a convenient solution for disposing of landscaping debris, as long as it is done safely and legally in your area. To ensure a safe and successful burn, follow these guidelines:

1. Check local regulations: Before you start burning, make sure it is legal to do so in your area. Some communities have restrictions on open fires, so it's important to check with your local government to see if burning yard waste is allowed.
2. Choose a safe location: Select a contained fire pit that is at least 150 feet away from neighbors and 50 feet from your home. Make sure the area is clear of any flammable materials and that there are no overhead obstructions.
3. Prepare for a calm day: Burning on a windless day is best to prevent the fire from spreading. Avoid burning on days with high winds or when the humidity is low.
4. Have a fire extinguisher nearby: It's important to have a fire extinguisher or a bucket of water nearby in case the fire gets out of control. Make sure someone is on-site with access to a hose to monitor the fire the entire time.
5. Monitor the fire: Keep an eye on the fire at all times and make sure it is fully extinguished before leaving the area.

By following these guidelines, you can safely dispose of your yard waste through burning, while also minimizing the risk of damage to your property and the environment.

Yard Waste Disposal FAQs

  • Toggle TWhat types of yard waste can be disposed of through my local government's collection program?itle

    Most local governments accept common yard waste items such as leaves, grass clippings, and branches. However, some programs may not accept certain items like poison ivy, poison oak, or poison sumac due to safety concerns. It’s best to check with your local government to determine which items are accepted.

  • How should I prepare my yard waste for collection?

    To ensure that your yard waste is collected properly, it’s important to prepare it correctly. This may include bagging or bundling the waste, and placing it at the curb or in a designated collection area. Check with your local government for specific guidelines on preparing your yard waste for collection.

  • Can I compost my yard waste instead of disposing of it through the government's collection program?

    Yes, composting is a great option for disposing of yard waste. Composting allows you to turn your yard waste into a nutrient-rich soil amendment for your garden or lawn. You can purchase a compost bin or create your own compost pile. Check with your local government to see if they offer any resources or guidelines on composting.

  • What if I have too much yard waste to fit in my curbside collection bin?

    If you have more yard waste than can fit in your curbside collection bin, there are a few options. You can purchase additional bins or containers, or you can consider renting a dumpster or using a yard waste collection service. Check with your local government to see if they offer any alternative collection options.

  • How can I reduce the amount of yard waste I generate?

    There are several ways to reduce the amount of yard waste you generate. For example, you can use a mulching mower to chop up leaves and grass clippings into small pieces that can easily decompose. You can also consider using native plants that require less maintenance and generate less waste. Additionally, you can reduce waste by using a drip irrigation system instead of a sprinkler, which can help reduce the amount of water you use and the amount of waste generated.
