How Much Can I Throw Away in a 10 Cubic Yard Dumpster?

Local landfills charge by the ton, and you’ll receive a set weight limit in your quoted price. After learning about your project, we’ll give you a limit that suits your scope of work and the debris you’re tossing. A 10 yard dumpster can typically haul away between 50 and 70 33-gallon trash bags, or three truckloads. Our average weight limit for a 10 yard dumpster is 1-2 tons (2,000-4,000 pounds), but can be as high as 10 tons if you're throwing away heavy debris like concrete or dirt.

How Should I Prepare for Delivery?

Once you’ve ordered your 10 yard dumpster, get the drop-off area ready for delivery day by following these four steps:

1. Leave room.

To accommodate a 10 yard dumpster rental, your driveway must be at least 60 feet long. You should also move your cars to the street and open any entry gates to your property before we get there.

2. Look up.

Our driver needs 23-25 feet of vertical clearance to raise your dumpster and place it correctly. For this reason, choose a drop-off location that’s free of low-hanging wires and branches.

3. Don't wait.

Your dumpster can arrive at any point during the day. We schedule drop-offs around the most fuel-efficient routes, so it’s important to prepare ahead of time. That said, you don’t need to be present when the bin arrives.

4. Pay attention.

Take note of your 10 yard dumpster’s weight limit and be careful not to overload it. If you exceed your weight limit or throw prohibited items in the bin, you’ll incur additional fees.
