Dumpster Size For Tear down
I am going to be tearing down an old 10'x25' workshop. its only 7' tall with a standard gable roof on it. I am going to be tearing it all down by hand. My question is that I am not sure what size dumpster this will take. I am not in a rush, my local dump rent dumpers by the month. So I should be able to take my time and really cut it all down to make it fit well.

Is any of it reusable? Craigslist might help you get rid of some of it.

Better yet.....tell them the whole thing is for the taking....some guys will actually come, dis-assemble and remove it for you.....

20 yd should do it if you pack carefully.

i would go with a 30 yard dumpster. It might be a little bigger than you need, but its cheaper than having a smaller one hauled twice. And ask them to rent it to you by the haul, not the month.

20 or 30. I agree with all posts, I would try only try craigslist thing if u have time and good insurance. I get alot of deals on craigslist on things like this when I tell seller I am bonified contractor WITH MY OWN INSURANCE. Got a Morton Building that I had to tear down for cheap, and I was the lowest bidder.

go with a 30 yrd, you will be amazed at how much other trash will end up in it.

really though, nothing drives me more crazy than leaving the dump trailer on site over the weekend to come in monday and find it full of "domestic garbage" such as old luggage, bags of clothes and other peoples old paint cans.... "

funny thing is in one of these situations,, the trailer was full of paint cans with no lids.. and the client recognized the colors and knew which neighbor it was

The building is 50+ years old and in pretty rough shape.. Its has new siding over its existing frame. I was debating if anyone would want part of the building, I was thinking it could be decent firewood. But the problem is there is no drywall on the inside of the building. The person that used to occupy the building was a meth-head artist, seriously.. He painted the inside of the studs and wall sheathing to look like tie dye, there is not one piece of wood on the whole building that is not covered in paint.

But I guess its worth a try to see if anyone wants it.
