Affordable Roll-Offs makes it easy to rent a dumpster that is the right size for your project. Ensuring you don’t pay extra for more dumpster capacity than you can use.

We compare a standard truck bed to our dumpsters, in an effort to provide a better reference for those of us who don’t deal with trash on a regular basis.

Dumpster Capacity & Weight Limits

Dumpster sizes are measured in Cubic Yards. A 30-Yard Dumpster has the capacity to hold up to 30-Cubic Yards of waste. As a reference, a standard Ford F-150 pick-up truck can hold about 2.5 yards of waste when loaded level at the top. Cubic-Yards are a measure of volume and not a measure of weight. 1 cubic-yard is equivalent to 3’ft Long x 3’ft Wide ‘x 3’ ft Tall box.

The Weight of A Dumpster

A dumpster’s weight can vary depending on the type of material you will be disposing of. It’s important to keep weight in mind when disposing of heavy materials, such as rock, dirt, concrete, brick or sod. Heavy materials can exceed the weight limit of the dumpster resulting in overweight charges. Please see below for weight limits included with our rentals. If you have questions or concerns regarding heavy materials please give us a call or email us at Sales@affordablerolloffs.com we’re always happy to help!
