 About 40-yard dumpster rentals:

The 40-yard dumpster is our largest size and suits a variety of large-scale projects. Whether planning a significant home remodel or building demolition, a 40-yard dumpster is a convenient waste management solution for property owners and contractors alike.

40-yard dumpsters typically measure 22 ft long, 7.5 ft wide, and 8 ft high. They can be placed in most construction sites, residential driveways, parking lots, etc.

However, if you have a very congested area that the truck needs to navigate to place the dumpster, you might have to go with a smaller size or, if possible, have the dumpster placed in the street.

Like most dumpsters, 40-yard containers feature a door at one end that swings open for effortless walk-in loading.

This makes it convenient for safely carrying heavy items or wheelbarrowing bulky, like home appliances, furniture, and demolition debris, into the dumpster.

Direct Dumpster Service can help you find the best dumpster for your project. Call us today to discuss capacity needs or to schedule your next rental.

Any preparation needed before dumpster is delivered?

Once you have ordered your 40-yard cubic dumpster, follow these four steps to have the drop-off area ready for the delivery day:

  • Leave room: The driveway must be a minimum of 60 ft long to accommodate a 40-yard dumpster. Please move your cars to the street and open any entry gates to your property before the dumpster delivery staff arrives.
  • Look up: The company driver will require a 23 ft of vertical clearance to raise the dumpster and place it neatly. That’s the reason why we need a drop-off location that’s free of low-hanging branches and wires.
  • Be Ready: The ordered dumpster can arrive at any time during the day. We schedule drop-offs over the most fuel-efficient routes, so it’s mandatory to prepare ahead of time. That said, you don’t have to be present when the dumpster is being delivered.
  • Pay attention: Note down the 40-yard dumpster’s weight limit and make sure you don’t pile it higher than the rim. Any excess above the allowed weight limit will incur additional charges once dumpster is weighed.

If you’re dumping everyday waste, chances are we can take it. However, it’s better to know what is not allowed in a dumpster to avoid additional charges. Prohibited items may vary depending on container type and your location.

Here are the items that are not allowed to be dumped in our dumpster rental.

  • Adhesives: Like glue or epoxy, adhesives should be disposed of with regular household trash or recycling instead of our dumpster bin. Loose adhesives can damage the bin, and they might also cause debris to stick together or to the walls of the container, making them tough to remove.
  • Car Batteries: Car batteries and lithium batteries can leak harmful chemicals and hence cannot go in a dumpster. Take old car batteries to a local auto shop or a recycler. Alkaline batteries, however, can go in a dumpster.
  • Fluorescent Lightbulbs: Fluorescent bulbs contain mercury in small quantities, and hence they cannot go in the dumpster. Some areas in the U.S. prohibit these items’ disposal, while some areas require them to be properly recycled. Recycling is required in California, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Minnesota, Vermont, and Washington.
  • Food Waste: Food waste is often prohibited from the dumpster rentals since it can make a mess in the container or attract rodents. If you have huge amounts of food waste to dispose of, consider sending the waste to a local composting center or using municipal trash services.
  • Freon: Unless the Freon is removed by some professional, freezers, refrigerators, and AC units cannot be disposed of in the dumpster.
  • Hot Water Tanks: Hot water tanks can contain harmful gases inside them that have a high risk of exploding, and hence they are not allowed to be dumped in the bin. You can dispose of hot water heater tanks by scrapping, selling, or donating.
  • Household Cleaners: Chemical solvents or cleaners should not be thrown in our dumpster. You may toss empty containers in the rented dumpster as long as they are rinsed out and free of any residual chemicals.
  • Resins and Inks: Resins and inks used in printers and pens can cause damage to the equipment and stain the dumpsters’ interiors.
  • Oils, Fuels & Propane Tanks: When thrown in a dumpster, flammable materials like oils, fuels, and propane tanks are absolute safety hazards. These items are highly combustible, and it is illegal in many areas to dispose of them improperly.
  • Lacquers and Paint: Partially full or full cans of wet paint, including paint thinners, lacquers, or wood stains, generally cannot go in a dumpster. Empty paint cans are accepted in our containers.
  • Railroad Ties & Telephone Poles: Lumber materials like telephone poles and railroad ties are treated with dangerous wood preservatives and are not allowed in our dumpsters. However, some landfills might accept intact railroad ties.
  • Tires: Most landfills do not accept tires because they can trap gases and take a long time to decompose. Instead of throwing tires in a dumpster, contact an auto parts store, your local municipality, or tire dealership.
