40-Yard Dumpster Rental
The maximum construction dumpster size is a 40-yard dumpster. A 40-yard roll-off dumpster is a perfect solution for any large-scale construction project. They’re a safe bet for handling debris from demolition, major remodels, and new construction projects. Large projects or construction sites may require multiple 40-yard dumpster rentals.
How Big is a 40 Yard Dumpster?
A 40 yard dumpster is 8’ W x 20’ L x 8’ H. The volume of the dumpster holds 40 cubic yards of debris. When you’re working on a construction project or home renovation having a dumpster of this size on site allows you to work comfortably without worry about creating too much debris to store. When the dumpster is full we come pick it up, dump it, and return it if need be.
Is a 40 Yard Dumpster Right for Your Project?
A 40-yard roll-off dumpster equals maximum loading capacity. If you not sure whether to choose a 30 yard or 40-yard dumpster going big is a safer route. If you go over capacity on a 30-yard dumpster, you may be faced with overage charges. A good visual reminder to think of when determining how much dumpster volume you need is to remember one cubic yard is equal to 3ft. x 3ft. x 3ft. That’s about one standard-size kitchen stove.
New home construction and large demolition projects call for a 40-yard dumpster. Roofing and shingle tear-offs can benefit from a roll-off dumpster with this capacity. Commercial building cleanouts, demolition, or construction need a large volume dumpster. Major renovations or entire home remodeling projects require large roll-off dumpsters. Severe hoarding situations may also call for a 40-yard dumpster.
You’ll need to have a level and easy to access space roughly the same size of the dumpster ready upon delivery. If you have multiple dumpsters and choose to designate a clean load dumpster for recyclables, you can usually get a better rate. Make sure you add about 8ft of clearance to open the doors on the rear of the dumpster. Keep the roll-off dumpster covered with a tarp when it’s not in use. Rain and snow will saturate debris and add weight which could push you over the allowed weight threshold. It also discourages people from using it as a personal dumpster.
