Dumpster Sizes

What size container is right for my business?

The City of Garland has many bin, dumpster and container options available to handle all of your waste and recycling needs. 

Front-load containers and open-top dumpsters are most often used for non-residential, business or commercial waste collection. You can arrange to have one or more two-, three-, four-, six- or eight-cubic-yard containers, or 20-, 30- or 40-cubic-yard open-top roll off dumpsters.

Front-load containers are good for offices, manufacturing plants, distribution centers, apartments, hotels, schools and universities, convenience stores, service stations, grocery stores, shopping centers, nail salons, restaurants, auto shops, hair salons, strip malls, health offices and fast-food restaurants.
