How Big Is a 10 Yard Dumpster?

The typical dimensions of a 10 yard dumpster are 14 feet long, 7.5 feet wide and 3.5 feet high. It can hold up to 10 cubic yards of debris in volume, which is about 50-60 13-gallon trash bags.

What's the Weight Limit?

A 10 yard dumpster typically has a 2-3 ton (4,000-6,000 pound) weight limit. Disposal costs for this weight of debris are included in our flat-rate price. Keep in mind, a kitchen sink can weigh between 50-100 pounds, so be aware that the weight of your debris adds up fast.

How to Prepare for Delivery and Pickup for a 10 Cubic Yard Dumpster

When ordering your 10 yard dumpster, keep in mind that you will need to provide placement instructions for the driver. No one needs to be onsite when the dumpster is dropped off or picked up, but keep in mind the following guidelines:

Select a Location:

Clear a spot where you'd like your dumpster placed. Remember that you'll need a permit from the city to have the dumpster placed on the street.

Remove Obstacles:

The truck will require about 60 feet of space to approach and about 23 feet of vertical clearance to raise and place the dumpster.

Call for Removal:

Don't forget to call to schedule pickup for your dumpster on or before the last day of your rental period.
