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.

Before your 15 yard dumpster arrives, prepare the delivery spot with these four steps:
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.
In order to raise and place your dumpster correctly, we need 23 feet of vertical clearance. You should choose an area that doesn’t have wires and branches hanging overhead.
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.
Remember your dumpster’s weight limit and be careful not to exceed it. If you do, you’ll incur per-ton overage charges.
There are many ways to fill a dumpster, but you can maximize the space in your 15 yard dumpster rental with these tips. First, walk large and heavy items inside the bin through the swinging door. To fill in the remaining space, you can toss small and light objects over the sides. Before we come back for the full container, make sure your debris is level, with nothing draped on the edges. This ensures a safe and successful pickup for our driver.
We accept most materials, including drywall, concrete, home clutter and yard waste. In some areas, you can dispose of appliances and mattresses with a 15 yard dumpster, but you may incur additional fees. These items take longer for landfills and transfer stations to process, making them more expensive to get rid of. Please note we can never haul away oil, asbestos, paint and other prohibited items due to safety concerns. If you have questions about the debris you’re tossing, contact our team.
