How Large Is a 15-Yard Dumpster?

15-yard dumpster dimensions measure 16 ft long x 7.5 ft wide x 4.5 ft high. This size typically holds up to 15 cubic yards of debris, which is about 33-gallon trash bags. This is a medium size and fits in most driveways.

Weight Restriction Included in The Cost

15-yard dumpsters commonly hold around two to three tons. Fees for disposal for this amount of debris are commonly added in our flat-rate fee. Don’t forget, the weight of your debris quickly adds up. For instance, your average toilet has a weight of around 100 lbs., so be aware of heavier debris.

Preparing for Your Dumpster

When deciding a location for your dumpster:

  • Stay away from areas near pedestrian sidewalks or vehicle traffic
  • Leave the needed area of a minimum of 100 ft in length for dumpster drop off
  • Choose a surface that is level, devoid of debris and obstructions such as lower hanging wires and/or tree branches

To get ready for dumpster pick up:

  • Make sure the debris in your dumpster is evenly distributed and not jutting out of the dumpster
  • Don’t go over the maximum tonnage permitted (ten tons)

On day(s) of service:

  • Move vehicles that are parked or other obstructions that could hinder our access to your dumpster
  • Be sure area gates are un-locked or provide our driver with a key or keycode to get access to the service area
  • Remove the tarp that was added to safeguard your dumpster from severe weather
