How Do You Calculate Dumpster Size?

A dumpster's exterior dimensions are typically measured in feet, while its total volume is measured in cubic yards. To calculate the size of a dumpster, multiply its exterior dimensions in feet together (length, width and height) to get its volume in cubic feet. Then, divide that number by 27 to convert cubic feet to cubic yards.

Use the graphic below to help you visualize the size of a cubic yard in relation to a 10 yard dumpster's total volume.
