Is it possible to have 10 tons of material from a house gutting in a single 8 x 20 container?

Renting a Dumpster for Demolition and the cost was for $375 (US) for a 8′ x 23′ container approximately 6′ high. I received a call two weeks later indicating that I exceeded the 7 ton ((14,000 pound) weight capacity. If find this hard to beleive because there was many holes and the material had loose wood, electrical odd pieces. How can I find more info?

well, that is 1100 cubic foot. at 14000 lbs, that is a density of 14000/1100 = 12.7 lbs/ft³

converting, that is 5.8kg/0.028m³ = 205 kg/m³

that is about 1/5 the density of water. less than 1/10 that of aluminum. so, yeah, seems about correct.
