What fits in a dumpster?

A 40-yard container is our largest container in most markets. This size is ideal for large-scale or long-term projects. It can be adapted to work from commercial cleanings to major home renovations. Container sizes are reflected in yards.

As a rule of thumb, one cubic yard equals 5-6 13-gallon garbage bags. We'll review the total volume and dimensions of each trash bin to help you decide. What fits in a 20-yard garbage can? A 20-yard bin is the right bin size for larger cleaning and remodeling projects. A 20-yard truck can hold approximately 10 loads of waste and debris in pickup trucks.

You can estimate that about 3 truck loads will fit in a 10-yard container, 6 truck loads in a 20-yard container, and about 9 truck loads in a 30-yard container.
