6 Yard Dumpsters

Dimensions & Capacity

The average 6 yard dumpster is 5' Long x 6' Wide x 6' High, a large and sturdy bin that can accommodate a large amount of trash easily. This particular size can hold up to 1200 lbs. which roughly translates to 45 bags of garbage, depending on what you are throwing out every week. These dumpsters are usually best left to large commercial buildings such as logistics centers, warehouses, and industrial facilities.

Though 6 yard dumpsters afford a lot more space for garbage, there are still certain things that cannot go in them. This includes hazardous waste such as flammable, corrosive, infectious, or toxic materials. Additional items we cannot accept include car tires, resins, soil, or any construction & demolition debris.

Who uses 6 yard dumpsters?

Most commercial buildings with between 5,000-10,000 square feet of space will get the most mileage out of a 6 yard dumpster. Due to its larger form factor it can accommodate larger and bulkier materials on a weekly, or even biweekly, basis. This flexibility comes in handy when your warehouse or industrial park becomes a hot bed of delivery trucks and shipping containers that threaten to overrun your loading dock. With a 6 yard dumpster, you can get all of those packing materials and cardboard boxes tossed out easily without any broken backs or an unpleasant pile of trash hanging out by your back door.

Other businesses that might find this size useful include wholesalers and large retailers, both of which go through a lot of materials in the course of stocking their shelves and distributing their wares. They are particularly useful for retailers who go through a lot of inventory as these 6 yarders feature a side-door that can be used instead of the bin's lid. This makes it a lot easier to dispose of trash bags, cardboard, old product, and anything else you have to junk since you won't have chuck them in over your head.

Where can I place this dumpster?

If you choose to rent a 6 yard dumpster there are a couple of things you should pay attention to in terms of site placement. First, ensure that the area where you wish to place it is large enough to accommodate a full-sized garbage truck. These vehicles are equipped with both front-loading and rear-loading lift systems that require at least 40 feet of clearance in order to maneuver in front of the dumpster. Since these trucks are so large, and the dumpster itself is nothing to sneeze at, it is not recommended to keep this dumpster in an alley.
