Cart and Dumpster Sizes

Bin Sizes & Specifications

To determine the appropriate bin or cart sizes required, it may be necessary to convert cubic yards to gallons, or vice versa. The following conversion information will enable faster calculations for specific development plans:

  • 1 gallon = 0.00495 cubic yards
  • 1 cubic yard = 202 gallons
  • Example: 1 cubic yard of solid waste requires approximately two 96-gallon carts
