Local Dumpster Rentals: 12 Yard Dumpster Dimensions and Capacity
A 12-yard dumpster is typically around 14 feet long, 7.5 feet wide, and 4 feet tall. The exact dimensions may vary depending on the location and hauler, but the volume will always be 12 cubic yards.
Our 12-yard dumpster rentals can fit anywhere from 60 to 85 33-gallon trash bags, or 3.5 pickup truckloads. However, the weight limit is more important than the volume, as landfills charge by the ton. Our average weight limit for a 12-yard dumpster is 1-2 tons (2,000-4,000 pounds), but it can be as high as 10 tons if you’re throwing away heavy debris like concrete or dirt.
If you’re not sure how much your debris weighs, you can use our weight calculators or contact us for a recommendation. We’ll be able to help you choose the right size dumpster for your project and ensure that you don’t exceed the weight limit.
