Go Big Or Go Home!

Dumpsters should never have any debris sticking up over the edge. If they do, they cannot be legally hauled on the road.

Typically there are not as many of the smaller sizes. They have a lower weight allowances and cannot carry as much debris. Also, the price difference from the smaller sizes to the larger sizes is very small. So the larger dumpsters are a much better value. The higher weight allowance, load capacity, value and availability make the 20s, 30s and 40s a better option usually, which is why they are so popular.

Weight Limits

All of our dumpster sizes can haul a very heavy load. Even a 10 yard dumpster rental is capable of hauling up to and over 10 tons. Even though any size dumpster can technically handle a very heavy load, it’s not advisable or even legal in most areas to haul them weighing more than approximately ten tons. One way that many haulers address this is by providing a flat rate with a weight allowance for each size, often called the “weight limit”. This weight limit is simply the amount of weight the hauler includes in the flat rate price. It helps to keep the dumpsters at safer hauling weights, and also helps keep customers total cost down for all dumpster rental sizes.

10 Yard Container : 8 Tons
20 Yard Container : 4 Tons

30 Yard Container : 6 Tons
40 Yard Container : 8 Tons

Well this would be our 3 Dumpster from Empire, because hands down there the best, all the way around the prices are great, the service is great, but most of all they care about having repeat customers, because the price you pay for a extra day is more than reasonable. I Recommend them for anyone that’s in need of a Dumpster period. Thank you again Empire and Michell is Awesome

Always there to help when I'm in a bind. As a local general contractor it is vitally important to have a great company like Empire to rely on...even with last minute requests.

Professional, courteous, great drivers. Couple of caveats. Placement of the five dumpsters was a bit off but when we were there to direct the driver they were spot on, including Foley putting one in a very tight spot. Second, our last dumpster was removed prematurely at 1/2-3/4 full. Will get with y'all again when we gather the rest of the debris for hauling. Last thing, Michelle is a peach.

Empire Waste Systems was awesome! The owner is a super nice guy. He personally came out and spent the day delivering and emptying multiple boxes. He did a great job getting his trucks right where we needed it and working with us and our neighbors on all aspects of the job. Definitely recommend Matt and his crew!

We've used Empire several times now during the process of our full home renovation. The staff is friendly, they have good availibility and I appreciate being able to keep the dumpster for a full week vs. other companies charging the same and only let you keep it for 4 days. They offer plenty of sizes and have always been super helpful. Thanks again!
