Dumpster Rentals in New Orleans, LA

New Orleans, Louisiana is a city that lies beside the Mississippi River, near the Gulf of Mexico, which is steeped in folklore and tradition. Nicknamed “The Big Easy,” it’s also known for its round-the-clock nightlife, vibrant live-music scene, and spicy cuisine that reflects its history as a melting pot of French, African and American cultures. It’s also home to Mardi Gras, the late-winter carnival famed for raucous costumed parades and street parties. The Dumpster Company is proud to be a member of the thriving business community and culture here, providing the most reliable service on the highest-quality roll-off dumpster rentals to construction contractors, demolition contractors, property managers, and homeowners who are do-it-yourself project enthusiasts.

Sizing-Up The Perfect Dumpster for The Job:

When researching the right dumpster for your upcoming project, the most important consideration is predicting the type of debris that will be generated, and the amount of total material that you will need to have removed. The waste management industry classifies roll-off dumpster sizes by measurement in cubic yards, and the Dumpster Rental Company provides containers in three key sizes to effectively address the majority of the needs we see among professionals and private residents in and around the city of New Orleans: 15-yards, 30-yards, and 40-yards. What follows below are some additional specifics on these roll-off container sizes, along with a quick reference guide of some of their common uses:

15-Yard Containers

Our 15-yard dumpsters can hold 15 cubic yards of waste, which comes out to approximately 4 ½ loads in a standard pickup truck. We routinely send these containers out in support of projects like:

  • Medium size garage, shed, and basement clean-outs
  • small-to-medium kitchen and bathroom renovations
  • Land clearing, lot-clearing, and small-to-medium landscaping jobs
  • Small home remodeling projects, replacements, and additions


8-Feet Wide by 15-Feet Long by 4-Feet High


15-yard dumpsters can hold as much as 2 to 3 tons, which is 4,000-6,000 pounds. All dumpsters have maximum weight limits, so it’s helpful to call and have a chat with one of our experienced dumpster

30-Yard Containers

These versatile dumpsters are a great choice when a project may produce large pieces of debris or material, like sections of flooring that have been removed, or appliances that are broken or no longer wanted. The experienced professionals at the Dumpster Rental Company have seen a wide variety of uses for this roll-off dumpster size, including (but not limited to):

  • Old flooring or roofing replacement projects. 
  • Living room, family room, and bedroom additions.
  • Patio and Deck replacements 
  • Medium-to-large size home remodeling 
  • Furniture replacements 


22-feet long, 8-feet wide and 6-feet high


30-yarder containers can accommodate up to 3-tons (6,000 pounds) of waste material.  Depending on the delivery location, as well as the density of the debris, this figure can vary. Call us now to discuss any particular details that could possibly affect your dumpster weight limits.

40-Yard Containers

The largest dumpster rental we deliver and service in greater New Orleans is usually necessary when an entire building or home is being built from scratch, remodeled, or demolished. Our 40-yard container holds up to 40-cubic yards of waste, which is the approximate equivalent of (230) 13-gallon garbage bags. The City By The Bay is somewhat infamous for the high cost of living these days, so it isn’t a surprise that demolition and construction contractors around here have one eye permanently fixed on their overhead expenses. And one thing’s for certain, this big hunk of metal is the most cost-effective way to remove the maximum amount of waste and debris because fewer total hauls are required for the same amount of material. We don’t require that person be a heavy construction foreman to rent our largest removable trash bin, of course. We simply ask you to please keep in mind that a “per-haul” price is fixed, regardless of the level to which the container has been filled, so a do-it-yourself person with small or medium-sized home home-renovation project is usually going to be better suited with a smaller roll-off dumpster rental.


8-feet Wide by 22-Feet Long by 8 Feet High.


Normally a 6 to 8-ton limit (12,000-16,000 pounds).

The Dumpster Rental Process:

Now that you’ve identified your need for a dumpster rental, there are three simple steps that you will want to follow. The first is gathering the information you need so that we can provide you with a price quote. For example, we need to know the type of waste material you will be putting in the container (also referred to as a “debris box”), and how much material there will be. Through our brief discussion together we can help make a recommendation on the most appropriate size, and accurately estimate how many times we’ll be hauling it away from the site. (Whenever uncertainty exists with respect to the appropriate size of debris-box for your project, we usually recommended the larger size to avoid needing to rent two containers if the first turns out not to be large enough. The second step is to give some thought to specific questions you may wish to ask us to help make sure that everything goes smoothly with your project, and that you are satisfied. The third step is picking a good location where the container will be placed and properly preparing the site to make certain your project runs efficiently, and to avoid any potential damage to your property.
