In general, all trash containers are called dumpsters. The type of business or project will determine the size of dumpster you require. There are small dumpsters for household garbage, which are sometimes called totes or cans. A container for trash outside a restaurant or similar business might need a 3-, 4-, or 6-yard dumpster. Occasionally, you will see a recycling dumpster outside a grocery or retail store that is labeled strictly for cardboard. These smaller-size dumpsters can range from one-quarter cubic yard to six cubic yards and have a throw-back lid. They are generally delivered to the site by a waste pickup truck and emptied weekly. Renting a dumpster that is too small could lead to additional charges for tonnage, over-the-limit fees, or the cost of having to rent multiple dumpsters.
