How much can the average American garbage truck hold?
Depends on the actual capacity of the body, manufacturer of the body, condition of the hydraulic pump, compressibility of the load (bulky items such as couches and wood do not compress). Average body sizes range from about15 to 32 cubic yards. The truck I drive is a 2005 Mack LE600 with a McNeilus 32 cubic yard packing body and I average weights ranging from 14.5 tons (multiple bulky items) to 18 tons (little or no bulky items). The most weight I have put on this truck in one shot is 21.74 tons.

A garbage truck weighs about 18 tons or 36,000 lbs when it is empty. The average garbage truck is quite heavy and weighs in at around30,000 pounds. It is much heavier than the… average truck due to itssize and additional equipment.

Americans create around 5 pounds of trash per person, per day. Thisresults in over 1 billion pounds of garbage a day.

Depends on the type of truck (whether its a dual tandem or a tri-axle) but most US trucks average between 9 - 11 yards.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average American produces about 4.4 pounds (2 kg) of garbage a day, or a total of 29 pounds (13 kg) per week and 1,600 po…unds (726 kg) a year. This only takes into consideration the average household member and does not count industrial waste or commercial trash.

It depends on the type of garbage truck. Roll-offs are around $130,000.00 and Front-load which dump the dumpsters are $225,000.00 to $235,000.00.
Depends how compact-able the garbage is.
I pay around about $1000 to $5000 a week.
