What size Asphalt Bin do I need?
One of the most vital points that you must recognize prior to hiring our asphalt containers is that it is an extremely heavy material. It is such a heavy product that you will not just need a bin capable of taking care of the weight of the asphalt, but also a durable truck to carry the bin loaded with the asphalt material.
Calculating Asphalt Weight
Prior to scheduling one of our asphalt containers, you will first need to figure out the amount of product you will be moving to rent the most ideal size of the bin. The National Asphalt Pavement Association has given guidance on asphalt weight calculations. According to NAPA, asphalt density weight is 145 lbs per cubic foot and 3,915 per cubic yard.
Proper Way to Load an Asphalt Bin
Asphalt must be properly placed inside the bin for safety, and also, because of the disposal guidelines, asphalt containers need to be entirely restricted to asphalt. If you require a mixed-use bin for asphalt and other materials like concrete, you can depend on us to provide the same. When you load the bin with asphalt, see to it that it is packed 12- to 18-inches from the top of the bin to make sure secure transportation from the job site to the garbage disposal facility.
Another point you need to take into consideration when packing an asphalt bin is that the weight of the asphalt together with the weight of the bin has the possibility to damage the storage area. That’s why it is strongly suggested to utilize plywood underneath the bin to allow for more even weight distribution in addition to decrease the threat of damages.
