Enter the dumpster volume (yd^3) into the Dumpster Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Dumpster Weight.

## Dumpster Weight Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Dumpster Weight.

DW = V * 300

Variables:

• DW is the Dumpster Weight (lbs of capacity)
• V is the dumpster volume (yd^3)

To calculate the dumpster weight, multiply the dumpster volume by 300.

## How to Calculate Dumpster Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Dumpster Weight.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the dumpster volume (yd^3).
• The dumpster volume (yd^3) is given as:: 20.
2. Finally, calculate the Dumpster Weight using the equation above:

DW = V * 300

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

DW = 20 * 300 = 6,000 (lbs of capacity)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

dumpster volume (yd^3) = 40

Test your knowledge and check your answer with the calculator..

DW = V * 300 = ?
