A 40 yard dumpster is typically the biggest size you can rent from us. We recommend using our large dumpster rentals for commercial renovations and major home projects. If you’re throwing away less than 5 tons of debris or heavier materials like concrete and brick, you should probably get a smaller size.

While we accept most debris types, there are certain materials you can never throw in a 40 yard dumpster rental. This includes household chemicals, asbestos, oil and other hazardous waste. In addition to posing a safety concern in landfills, these items may damage your dumpster as well. Please note that we can haul away appliances and mattresses in some areas, but you may incur a per-item disposal fee. It takes longer for landfills to process these things, making them more expensive to get rid of. If you have questions about anything you’re throwing away, reach out to our team.
