What size Asphalt Bin do I need?
One of the most crucial things that you need to consider prior to renting our asphalt containers is that it is an exceptionally hefty product. It is such a heavy product that you will not only need a bin capable of dealing with the weight of the asphalt, but likewise a sturdy truck to transport the bin filled with the asphalt waste.
Calculating Asphalt Weight
Before scheduling one of our asphalt bins, you will initially need to determine the amount of material you will be moving to order the right size of bin. The National Asphalt Pavement Association has provided guidelines 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 properly loaded into the bin for safety, and, due to the disposal standards, asphalt containers must be solely restricted to asphalt. If you need a mixed-use bin for asphalt and other materials such as concrete, you can count on us to supply the same. When you load the bin with asphalt, make certain that it is packed 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 picking 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 highly suggested to make use of plywood underneath the bin to enable even more even weight distribution in addition to minimizing the chance of damages.
