What Is A 3 Yard Dumpster?

A 3 yard dumpster is a permanent container for trash or recycling at commercial businesses. It's an excellent choice for small businesses that generate a moderate amount of waste, such as coffee shops that serve up to 150 customers daily, or small residential complexes with up to 4 units.

These dumpsters are made to fit into tight spaces like alleyways to accommodate businesses with small waste volumes and minimal space.

How Big Is A 3 Yard Dumpster?

A 3 yard dumpster is the second-smallest commercial size available for permanent dumpster rental. A 3 yard dumpster's dimensions are 6 feet long, 3 feet wide, and 3 feet tall. With a capacity of 3 cubic yards or approximately 36 kitchen-sized trash bags, it offers a slightly larger waste capacity than a 2 yard dumpster. The weight limit for a 3 yard dumpster rental is 600 pounds.

This size is best for small businesses like coffee shops, retail boutiques, and compact offices that generate a moderate amount of waste.

How Much Does 3 Yard Dumpster Rental Cost?

3 yard dumpster rental prices can vary based on factors such as your business location, frequency of trash pickup, type of waste, and local disposal fees.

Each county and city has its own rates for dumping different types of materials. For instance, a 3 yard dumpster rental at a restaurant with weekly servicing will have a different cost than a 3 yard dumpster rental for office recycling with bi-weekly servicing.

How Does 3 Yard Dumpster Rental Work?

Renting a 3 yard commercial dumpster is a simple. Simply submit a request for a quote, providing details such as your desired trash pickup frequency, business location, and the type of debris you'll be discarding.

Commercial Dumpster Servicing Tips

Make sure the location for your dumpster is:

  1. Accessible: Ensure that the location allows our haulers' easy access to service the bin, free from any obstructions.

  2. Enclosed: Optimal locations for your dumpster are within a secure enclosure, protecting it from unauthorized use or vandalism. Make sure your enclosure is able to be fully opened for servicing.

Once you receive your container, you can begin filling it with your trash. Please refrain from disposing of restricted items or hazardous waste into the bin and make sure to bag your trash if possible.

Dumpster Service Days

Your dumpster will be serviced according to the pickup schedule you have chosen. On days of servicing, make sure your dumpster is ready by keeping all trash inside the bin.
