20 Yard Dumpsters
What are the different types of 20 yard dumpsters?
Roll-off dumpsters: This is the most common type of 20 yard dumpster. Most feature a door that swings open for easy loading, making it easy to load bulky or heavy items, like furniture, appliances, concrete, or demolition debris.
Dumpster trailers: Some dumpster rental providers have specially-designed trailers for loads of 20 cubic yards or less. When a roll-off dumpster isn’t a viable option, like if the ground is soft or uneven, a dumpster trailer is a more suitable solution.
How much can a 20 yard dumpster hold?
Most 20 yard roll-offs are big enough and strong enough to hold as much 10+ tons of debris, but dumpster rental companies almost never allow this. The average 20 yard dumpster weight limit is 3-4 tons, or 6,000-8,000 lbs.
There are 3 main reasons for weight limits:
The lifting and hauling capacity of the truck cannot accommodate that much weight.
Truck hauling weight limit restrictions (varies by city/county)
Landfill cost per ton — Dumpster rental companies are charged a per-ton rate at the landfill. Dumpster rental costs would be much higher if there were no customer weight limits.
