40-Yard Dumpster FAQs

A 40-yard dumpster holds 40 cubic yards of waste material. That translates roughly to 16-20 pickup truck loads, 400+ large trash bags, or 4 small dump trucks’ worth of debris. Our 40-yard dumpsters have the same footprint as our 20-yard and 30-yard dumpsters, just with higher sidewalls. That means these heavy-duty dumpsters can still easily fit wherever you need them on your job site or commercial property.

The legal tonnage limit for roll-off dumpsters is 12 tons. Because 40-yard dumpsters generally weigh about 6,500 lbs., we ask that no more than 8 tons be loaded into the dumpster at a time. If your job generates more than this limit, we have plenty of options. Our team can quickly and easily arrive on-site to swap out dumpsters when you need us or on a regular schedule.

There are many factors that go into determining your dumpster rental cost, including the job type, the materials being disposed of, and your location. To ensure that our clients receive the best possible price and the best possible service, we quote each job customized to your specific needs. Our billing process is easy, transparent, and all-inclusive, with no hidden fees. Please reach out to a member of our team for a quick response and transparent pricing!
