40 Yard Roll-Off Dumpster Size, Price, & Capacity

Deciding you need a dumpster is fairly easy, but knowing what dumpster size is appropriate for your project is altogether more difficult. 

Small 10-cubic yard “lowboy” roll-off dumpsters might be sufficient for small projects, but to meet your commercial needs or large-scale home remodeling needs or to host the debris left behind after years of hoarding, you may require a much larger dumpster. 

Are you looking around for a reputable and experienced dumpster rental provider in Southern Texas? Do you think you will need a 40-yard roll-off dumpster, but are you not quite sure yet? 

Let’s dive into the specifics so that you’ll be able to pick the right dumpster with ease and have it delivered to your location in San Antonio and surrounding areas, all the way to the edge of  Eagle Ford Shale, in no time.

How Large Is a 40 Yard Roll-Off Dumpster?

A 40 cubic-yard roll-off dumpster is the largest commercially-available standard dumpster. The 40-yard roll-off dumpsters South Texas Dumpsters offers for large-scale residential and commercial projects in and around San Antonio, TX, are 8’ high, 8′ wide, and 22′ long.

These dimensions are not just important when you consider the capacity of the dumpster — which we’ll talk about in a little while — but also to determine whether the dumpster can fit into your driveway or other designated space. 

That is why it is crucial to take into account that 40-yard roll-off dumpsters are too tall to manually load from the top. In the case of commercial projects, 40-yard roll-off dumpsters are typically loaded from the top with the help of an excavator or bobcat. These large dumpsters are also, however, equipped with swing doors at their rear ends. You will have to keep this in mind as you decide where your dumpster should be placed. You’ll need a 10′ by 60′ area to facilitate dumpster placement. 

Pricing: How Much Does it Cost to Rent a 40 Yard Roll-Off Dumpster in Southern Texas?

You may have heard that the nationwide average cost of renting a 40-yard roll-off dumpster is $600 to $950, but keep in mind that dumpster rental prices fluctuate.

The South Texas Dumpsters team prides itself on offering some of the most competitive rates in the San Antonio region. When you need to rent a dumpster in San Antonio or any of the surrounding areas, we will always offer you a transparent quote without any hidden fees. 

However, pricing does depend on a number of factors. 

Supply and demand, current fuel costs, your location, and the duration of your rental needs all factor into the final quote you will receive. The nature of the materials you will be disposing of in the dumpster influences the price as well.

Get in touch with South Texas Dumpsters any time to discuss your specific needs, and we will get you set up with a transparent quote in no time. If you decide to partner with South Texas Dumpsters, we will typically be able to get your 40-yard roll-off dumpster set up at your home or job site within 24 hours. 

What Is the Capacity of a 40 Yard Roll-Off Dumpster?

Homeowners, commercial ventures, and construction sites in San Antonio and the surrounding areas may choose to opt to have a 40-yard roll-off dumpster delivered to their job sites if they are engaging in a large-scale project. 

A smaller dumpster may not meet your needs if you are:

  • Carrying out a large-scale home remodeling project, to flip a home, add an extension to your property, rebuild your garage, replace a roof, or renovate a whole floor. 
  • Are preparing for an estate clearing project, and planning to dispose of most of the property’s contents.
  • Eliminating large quantities of debris and garbage from a home subjected to hoarding, and the debris is present throughout the property and even in the yard.
  • Getting ready for a complete landscaping overhaul.
  • Gearing up for an office clean-out or renovation project.
  • Running an ongoing construction site or pipeline construction project.

The 40-yard roll-off dumpsters South Texas Dumpsters work with hold 40 cubic yards of materials. Each waste material has a different weight, however, so you will need to take the dumpster’s weight capacity into account as you load your garbage. Our 40-yard roll-off dumpsters can be used to house up to four tons of garbage or debris — which amounts to approximately 8,000 pounds.

Once your dumpster reaches capacity, give us a call as soon as possible.
