20 Yard Dumpster Tips for Fresno, CA
20 Yard Dumpsters
How much can I put in a 20 yard dumpster?
Most 20 yard roll-offs are big enough and strong enough to hold as much as 10+ tons of debris, but dumpster rental companies almost never allow this.
There are 3 main reasons for this:
The truck that picks up the dumpster cannot lift or haul that much weight.
Your city/county’s weight limit restrictions for truck hauling may prohibit it.
Dumpster rental companies are charged a per-ton rate at the landfill, and dumpster rental costs would be much higher if there were no customer weight limits.
The average 20 yard dumpster weight limit is 3-4 tons, or 6,000-8,000 lbs.
To determine how much you will be able to put in your 20 yard dumpster, you’ll need to determine your specific dumpster's weight allowance. Each dumpster rental provider will offer a different weight allowance for the rental price they quote you, so make sure you reach out to multiple providers to get the best price.
Once you know how much weight is included in your dumpster quote, you can estimate the approximate weight of the junk or debris you need to put into the dumpster.
Local dumpster rental companies are pros at estimating how much debris weighs, and they will be able to help you choose the perfect dumpster for your needs.
