What size Asphalt Bin do I need?
One of the most essential things that you need to recognize prior to renting our asphalt bins is that it is an extremely heavy material. It is such a heavy product that you will not only need a bin capable of dealing with the weight of the asphalt, but also a heavy-duty vehicle to carry the bin filled with the asphalt material.
Calculating Asphalt Weight
Before booking one of our asphalt containers, you will first need to calculate the quantity of product you will be moving to rent the best size of bin. The National Asphalt Pavement Association has provided guidelines 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 needs to be properly placed into the bin for safety, and, due to the disposal guidelines, asphalt containers should be solely assigned to asphalt. If you need a mixed-use bin for asphalt and various other materials like concrete, you can count on us to supply the same. When you pack the bin with asphalt, ensure that it is packed 12- to 18-inches from the top of the bin to make sure secure transport from the job site to the garbage disposal center.
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 cause damage to the storage space. That’s why it is strongly suggested to utilize plywood underneath the bin to allow more even weight allotment as well as to decrease the possibility of damage.
