dumpster size
tearing down a garage. 22 feet x25 feet x 8feet. what size dumpster is needed to hall debri away?

Most dumpster companies know how much debris will fill their various units and they may only have certain sizes. I would guess a 20 yard unit although it may be a little small yet….it depends if they allow you to overfill the top of it..

A yard is a 3 feet X 3 feet X 3 feet cube so a 20 yard would be 20 times that size.

22 X 8 X 2 walls + 25 X 8 X 2 walls = 44 + 50 X 8 = 94 X 8 = 752 square feet of walls
752 X 1/3 foot thick walls (2 X 4 + siding) = 250 cubic feet
1 yard equals 27 cubic feet
250 / 27 = 9.3 cubic yards just for the walls and doors

22 X 25 foot area of roof = 550 Sq Ft of roof materials
550 X 1/2 foot thick rafters/shingles (2 X 6 rafters and sheathing) = 275 cubic feet of roofing materials
275 / 27 = 10 cubic yards for roofing materials although the pitch of the roof and overhang will add to that figure.

9.3 + 10 = 19.3 plus adding for roof pitchand overhang total volume of garage materials….allow a little extra for wasted space in debris.

I’d go with a 30 yard or two trips with smaller ones.
