40 Yard Dumpster
40 yard dumpsters are the largest size in most markets. These sizes of containers will handle almost any variety of large scale jobs. If you are demolishing a building or a major home remodel, a 40 yard dumpster is the best waste management solution. Use this size of the container to remove trash, debris, and remodeling for projects like:
• Garage tear down
• Building home additions
• Renovating kitchens
• Plaster and drywall
• Wood carpet and other floorings
The dimension of a 40 yard dumpster is about 22 feet long, 7.5 feet wide, and 8 feet high. This container holds up to 40 cubic yards, which is about 240 13-gallon trash bags, or 20 pickup loads. The weight capacity include in rental rates are 5-6 tons or 10,000 to `1,000 pounds. Disposal costs are included in rental rates, but the price can change depending on the exact weight limit, type of container, and materials you are throwing out.
A 40 yard debris dumpster is usually rectangular and has an open-top. These dumpsters also feature a swinging door so that you can load heavy waste easily.
To plan for delivery and pickup of your dumpster, designate a drop-off area when you rent the container. Make sure it is in a convenient location that is easily accessed. Clear the spot where you want to place your 40 yard roll off dumpster. You need about 60 feet of space leading up to the drop off area and at least 23 feet of overhead clearance. Don't overload your dumpster. It could be a safety hazard for anyone near the dumpster. Also, if the content is more than 10 tons in weight, it will be difficult to remove.
For smooth pickup, make sure the area surrounding your container isn't blocked by locked gates, parked cars, or any other obstacle.
Prices of 40 yard junk removal rentals can vary depending on your location, type of debris that is thrown away or even disposal needs. Prices typically cover delivery, pickup, taxes, and a weight limit.
Follow these tips when renting a dumpster of any yard size.
If you are not sure of the size you want, get a bigger size. You may find that more often than not, you will save money by avoiding overage fees with a larger size container. You can always give us a call and we can help with estimating the weight and volume of different types of debris. Please be detailed about the project to ensure an accurate weight estimate
Keep the dumpster covered when not in use. Covers like tarps keep passersby from tossing the trash into your container and will keep rain from soaking debris. Both situations could cause overage costs.
