How much weight can you put in a 15 yard dumpster?
A 15 yard dumpster can hold approximately 80-100 33-gallon trash bags. It will typically weigh 1-2 tons (2,000-4,000 pounds) when filled, depending on what you’re throwing away. Local landfills charge disposal costs by the ton, so we include a set weight limit as part of your flat-rate price.
How do I know what size dumpster I need?
To calculate the size of a dumpster, multiply its exterior dimensions in feet (length x width x height) together to get its volume in cubic feet. Then, divide that number in cubic feet by 27 to convert the measurement to cubic yards.
