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)

## How to Calculate Dumpster Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Dumpster Weight.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the dumpster volume (yd^3).
- The dumpster volume (yd^3) is given as:: 20.

- 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** = ?**
