What size Asphalt Bin do I need?
One of the most important things that you should understand prior to renting our asphalt bins is that it is an exceptionally hefty material. It is such a heavy product that you will not just require a bin capable of dealing with the weight of the asphalt, but also a durable vehicle to transport the bin full of the asphalt material.
Calculating Asphalt Weight
Prior to booking one of our asphalt bins, you will first need to determine the amount of product you will be moving to lease the right size of bin. The National Asphalt Pavement Association has provided recommendations on asphalt weight calculations. According to NAPA, asphalt density weight is 145 lbs per cubic foot and also 3,915 per cubic yard.
Proper Way to Load an Asphalt Bin
Asphalt needs to be correctly placed into the bin for safety, and also, due to the disposal guidelines, asphalt containers must be solely assigned to asphalt. If you require a mixed-use bin for asphalt as well as other materials like concrete, you can rely on us to provide the same. When you fill the bin with asphalt, ensure that it is filled 12- to 18-inches from the top of the bin to ensure safe transport from the job site to the garbage disposal center.
Another point you need to think about when loading an asphalt bin is that the weight of the asphalt combined with the weight of the bin has the potential to damage the storage space. That’s why it is strongly recommended to utilize plywood beneath the bin to allow for more even weight distribution as well as to reduce the risk of damages.
