How Much Can I Throw Away in a 15 Yard Dumpster Rental?

A 15 cubic yard dumpster can haul away 80 to 100 33-gallon trash bags, or 4.5 pickup truckloads. Our average weight limit for a 15 yard dumpster is 1-2 tons (2,000-4,000 pounds), but a full dumpster can be heavier depending on what you’re throwing away. We’ll learn about your scope of work and the debris you’re tossing before deciding on the appropriate tonnage. Local landfills charge by the ton, and overfilling your dumpster will result in per-ton overage fees. Use our weight calculators to see if this size can accommodate your materials.

How Should I Prepare for Delivery?

Before your 15 yard dumpster arrives, prepare the delivery spot with these four steps:

1. Make way.

Our driver needs 60 feet of space in length to place your 15 yard dumpster rental. Make sure the drop-off location is long enough, clear and accessible before we get there.

2. Check for wires.

In order to raise and place your dumpster correctly, we need 23-25 feet of vertical clearance. You should choose an area that doesn’t have wires and branches hanging overhead.

3. Plan accordingly.

Your dumpster delivery can happen at any point during the day, so it’s important to prepare the drop-off location ahead of time. Open any entry gates to your property and park your cars in the street or garage.

4. Pay attention.

Remember your dumpster’s weight limit and be careful not to exceed it. If you do, you’ll incur per-ton overage charges.
