Cubic Yards Explained
Heartland Recycling Services provides roll off dumpsters that are measured by the volume of material that they can carry. Typical sizes of dumpsters range from 10, 20, 30, and 40 cubic yards in total volume capacity.
A cubic yard is simply one yard (3 feet) long x one yard (3 feet) wide x one yard (3 feet) high. A cubic yard is also equal to 27 cubic feet. To picture this, two washing machines are just over a cubic yard in volume.
