Insufficient data to answer, a cubic yard is a measure of volume (3feet x 3feet x 3feet); whereas a ton is a measure of mass/weight (2000 pounds). Different materials have different weights. A "yard" of feathers will weigh a lot less than a "yard" of mud. A cubic yard in shiping is counted as a ton.
