When it comes to disposing of heavy debris, such as concrete or bricks, it's important to know the weight limits of the dumpster you're renting. Our typical weight limit for a 10-yard garbage container is between 1 and 2 tons, while a 40 cubic yard bin typically has a weight limit of 6 to 8 tons, or 12,000 to 16,000 pounds. The average weight limit for a 12-yard dumpster filled with concrete is approximately 12 tons. Some companies offer a special garbage can called a 12 heavy yard, which has a 10-ton weight limit.
It's important to note that the amount of weight that can go inside a garbage container depends on the type of debris. For example, a 10-yard trash can filled with old furniture and garbage bags will weigh significantly less than a 10-yard garbage bin filled with concrete or dirt.

Each dumpster rental company has its own set of weight limits, depending on the type of debris.
