How Much Can I Throw Away in a 30 Cubic Yard Dumpster?

A 30 yard dumpster rental can hold 170-190 33-gallon trash bags, or 9 pickup truckloads. The average weight limit for a 30 yard dumpster is 2-4 tons (4,000-8,000 pounds), but it can be higher depending on what you’re throwing away. Before setting a weight limit, our team will learn about your job and the debris you’re getting rid of.

How Should I Prepare for Delivery?

Before we drop off your 30 yard dumpster, prepare the delivery spot with these four steps:

1. Leave room.

Your driveway must be 60 feet long to fit a 30 yard dumpster rental. Move your cars to the street or garage and open any entry gates to your property before we get there.

2. Look up.

Our driver needs 25-30 feet of vertical clearance to raise your dumpster and place it correctly. Make sure the drop-off location is clear of low-hanging wires and branches.

3. Plan ahead.

We schedule deliveries around the most fuel-efficient routes, so your dumpster can arrive at any point during the day. While you don’t need to be present for drop-off, you should prepare the area ahead of time.

4. Pay attention.

Take note of your weight limit and stay within it. If you overfill your dumpster or throw away prohibited items, you’ll incur additional fees.
