As of 2015, Waste Management provides roll-off containers that range in size from 10 to 40 cubic yards for residential, commercial and industrial customers. However, not all of these sizes are available in all areas, so it is necessary to contact the local Waste Management branch to determine what size roll-off containers it offers.
Designed for small- and medium-sized projects, the 20-cubic-yard roll-off containers are 3.5 feet tall, 8 feet wide and 20 feet long. These containers can hold approximately 4 tons of trash and materials. Waste Management's 40-cubic-yard roll-off containers are usually 5 feet tall, 8 feet wide and 22 feet long, while the company's 40-cubic-yard dumpsters are approximately 7 feet tall, 8 feet wide and 23 feet long.
