How can do I avoid extra costs?
The load must not exceed  the top of the Dumpster as we must be able to cover the load. EVENLY distribute the weight as much as possible. If the dumpster is overloaded and unsafe to transport, it will have to be made safe by the customer and you will be billed for an extra trip. If SOCO Waste has to unload and reload in order to transport, the man hours will be billed at $50.00 per man hour.
Make sure the dumpster is accessible.  A return trip charge will be added to your invoice if the dumpster is not accessible when scheduled for pick up.
Will it damage my driveway?

Most of the time driveways are not damaged. Our company always exercises extreme care when delivering or picking up the containers. SOCO Waste is not responsible for weak, broken or damaged driveways.

How many cubic yards are in the average truck bed?

Most full size pickup trucks are usually about 8 feet long by 5 ft. wide and approximately 1.5 feet in height. The average truck will hold approximately 2.5 cubic yards of material.

How do you measure a cubic yard?

If you were to measure your material in a box, a cubic yard would be 3’ wide x 3’ long and 3’  in height.

How much does a cubic yard weigh?

Really that all depends on the type of materials you have on hand. Are your materials wet? For example, if you were to take 100lbs of mulch that’s dry and add water, the mulch would absorb the water and possibly weigh a few pounds more.

How many wheelbarrows would it take to fill a cubic yard?

The average wheel barrel holds approximately three cubic feet; it would take approximately nine loads to equal one cubic yard.

Should I haul a cubic yard in my pickup truck or trailer?

We do not recommend hauling excessive weight in a normal pickup truck. Make sure you are within your vehicles safety ratings.

How do I buy materials by the cubic yard?

If you have not worked with materials in big quantities, it’s really easy to get started. Call SOCO Waste and recycling for a list of our preferred dealers, and we can help you get discount rates on specific items when we deliver your products!
