What size Asphalt Bin do I need?
One of the most vital points that you must consider before renting our asphalt containers is that it is an incredibly heavy product. It is such a heavy product that you will not only need a bin capable of taking care of the weight of the asphalt, but also a heavy-duty truck to haul the bin full of asphalt waste.
Calculating Asphalt Weight
Before booking one of our asphalt bins, you will first need to calculate the quantity of product you will be moving to lease the best size of the bin. The National Asphalt Pavement Association has actually supplied guidance on asphalt weight calculations. According to NAPA, asphalt density weight is 145 pounds per cubic foot as well as 3,915 per cubic yard.
Proper Way to Load an Asphalt Bin
Asphalt must be properly placed into the bin for safety, and also, due to the disposal guidelines, asphalt containers need to be entirely assigned to asphalt. If you need a mixed-use bin for asphalt as well as various other products like concrete, you can rely on us to supply the same. When you load the bin with asphalt, ensure that it is filled 12- to 18-inches from the top of the bin to ensure secure transportation from the job site to the waste disposal facility.
Another thing you need to take into consideration when filling an asphalt bin is that the weight of the asphalt combined with the weight of the bin has the potential to cause damage to the storage space. That’s why it is strongly recommended to make use of plywood below the bin to allow even more even weight distribution in addition to minimize the chance of damages.
