2 cubic yard dumpster in a commercial parking lot

How Big Is a 2 Yard Dumpster?

The typical dimensions of a 2 yard dumpster are 6 feet long, 3 feet wide and 3 feet high. These bins hold 2 cubic yards of garbage, or about 24 kitchen-size trash bags.

What's the Weight Limit?

A 2 yard bin usually has a 400 pound weight limit. Disposal costs for this amount of debris are covered by our flat rate price. Keep in mind that, depending on what you’re throwing out, you may hit your dumpster’s weight limit before it’s full. Discuss your waste stream with our team to double-check you’ve got the right size for your business.
