A 3 yard dumpster is common for smaller businesses with less than 50 employees. This dumpster is equivalent to roughly four 96-gallon plastic carts and can hold approximately 22 large bags of trash or a total weight of around 600 lbs. Containers can be made lockable and wheels can also be added to make your dumpster placement more manageable.
These commercial dumpsters would be used for more common trash such as food waste, cardboard, paper, plastic and aluminum; they should not be used for appliances, electronics, chemical waste or medical waste. These smaller dumpsters are also a great option for those looking for an affordable dumpster rental, but need something slightly bigger than the two yard dumpster.
