What’s a cubic yard?

The disposal fee for bulk garbage, construction material, brush, etc. is based on the load size or volume of material that is brought in. The unit of measurement is a cubic yard. A cubic yard is a unit of volume that measures 3 feet x 3 feet x 3 feet. Not sure of the volume of your pickup truck or trailer? Check out our What's a Cubic Yard? brochure for some examples.
