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. 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!
**Rock, brick, sod, and concrete are not permitted in our dumpsters**
