The Weight Limit for a 20 Cubic Yard Dumpster

A 20 cubic yard dumpster is designed to handle 10 tons of material. However, the base rental rate only includes 3 tons of weight. If your disposal items exceed this 3-ton mark, there's an additional fee, generally set at $70 for each exceeding ton. It's essential to factor in local regulations and the type of waste being tossed when planning your rental, as these can influence weight constraints.
