It is such a heavy material that you will not just require a bin capable of taking care of the weight of the asphalt, but additionally a sturdy truck to carry the bin loaded with the asphalt material.

The National Asphalt Pavement Association has supplied guidelines on asphalt weight calculations. According to NAPA, asphalt density weight is 145 pounds per cubic foot and also 3,915 per cubic yard.
Proper Way to Load an Asphalt Bin
Asphalt should be correctly packed inside the bin for safety, and also, because of the disposal guidelines, asphalt containers need to be solely assigned to asphalt. If you need a mixed-use bin for asphalt as well as other products such as concrete, you can count on us to supply the same. When you pack the bin with asphalt, make sure that it is packed 12- to 18-inches from the top of the bin to ensure safe transportation from the worksite to the garbage disposal center.
Another point you need to consider when loading an asphalt bin is that the weight of the asphalt combined with the weight of the bin has the possibility to damage the storage location. That’s why it is highly recommended to use plywood beneath the bin to allow more even weight distribution as well as to minimize the chance of damage.
