20 Yard Dumpsters
Understand 20 Yard Dumpster Weight Limits
Due to weight load restrictions, disposal fees, and capabilities of the truck hauling the load, weight limits are put into place by dumpster rental companies.
The average weight allowance for 20 yard dumpsters is 3-4 tons (6,000-8,000 lbs). Weight restrictions vary from one company to the next, so make sure you discuss this with each provider you speak to. Some rental providers may offer a 2 ton weight allowance, while others may offer an 8 ton weight limit.
Know When to Use a 20 Yard Dumpster
A 20 yard dumpster may be the right dumpster size for a large basement, attic, or garage cleanup, as well as flooring and carpet removal in larger homes, 300 sq ft-400 sq ft of deck removal, or 2,500 sq ft-3,000 sq ft of roof shingles.
