There is no correct answer for this question. Given that "trash" is a general term, the is no consistancy to a cubic yard of trash. A cubic yard of construction material will not weigh the same as a cubic yard of household waste. It also will depend on how dense the material is compacted into the cubic yard. A yard of crumbled up news paper will weigh less than a yard of news print that is layered neatly. A general rule of thumb is a cubic yard of gereral household waste should weigh between 80 to 100 lbs. not compacted.
