What size Asphalt Bin do I need?
One of the most vital things that you should understand before renting our asphalt containers is that it is an extremely hefty material. It is such a heavy product that you will not only require a bin capable of handling the weight of the asphalt but likewise a durable vehicle to transport the bin full of the asphalt material.
Calculating Asphalt Weight
Prior to reserving one of our asphalt containers, you will initially need to calculate the quantity of product you will be moving to rent the most ideal size of bin. The National Asphalt Pavement Association has actually supplied guidelines 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 correctly loaded inside the bin for safety, and, due to the disposal guidelines, asphalt bins should be exclusively dedicated to asphalt. If you need a mixed-use bin for asphalt and other products like concrete, you can count on us to provide 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 packing an asphalt bin is that the weight of the asphalt combined 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 beneath the bin to enable more even weight distribution as well as to decrease the threat of damage.
