How Much Dirt Does a 5 Gallon Bucket Hold?

Five gallon buckets are the ideal size for storing and transporting a variety of goods. These buckets are commonly used in the construction industry and can be purchased at most home improvement stores. You can also find them at hardware stores or purchase them online from retailers like Amazon.com.

The volume of a five gallon bucket is 2.5 gallons, or 19 liters, as noted on its label. This means that a five gallon bucket can hold about 5 pounds of dirt. If you want to measure how much dirt your bucket holds using cups or other measuring tools, use one-fifth of the total volume as an approximation for how much is in each bucket.

For example, if you have four buckets full of soil and want to know how much one weighs so you can add fertilizer, multiply 4 by 5/5 = 2 pounds per bucket full; this is equivalent to 10 cups of soil per bucket full (2 pounds divided by 16 ounces per cup).
