40 Yard Dumpster Rental

40 yard dumpster dimensions

The 40 cubic yard roll off dumpster is the largest model. It is typically used for very large residential construction or for commercial projects.

The 40 cubic yard dumpster is commonly used for:

  • New construction or major additions on large homes
  • Window or siding replacement in large homes
  • Commercial or office building cleanouts
  • Commercial roofing projects
  • Large amounts of debris, trash, paper, or cardboard from demolitions

Because the walls of the 40 yard dumpster are 8 feet high, it is difficult to load by throwing material over the top. The 40 yard dumpster is typically loaded from above via dock, or by walking materials in after opening the swing door and the end of the dumpster.

The 40 yard dumpster is approximately 8’ high, 8′ wide, and 22′ long.

How Much Can the 40 Yard Dumpster Hold?

This dumpster can hold 40 cubic yards of material, or approximately 20 pickup truck loads.

How Much Space is Required for Delivery?

A space that is 10′ wide by 60′ long should be sufficient for delivery. Keep in mind that the dumpster has an 8′ swing out door, so you may want to have the dumpster placed with room to open the swing door if you plan to walk materials into the dumpster.
