What size Asphalt Bin do I need?
One of the most crucial points that you should know prior to hiring our asphalt bins is that it is an extremely hefty product. It is such a heavy material that you will not just need a bin capable of handling the weight of the asphalt, but likewise a durable truck to carry the bin loaded with the asphalt waste.
Calculating Asphalt Weight
Before scheduling one of our asphalt containers, you will initially need to figure out the quantity of material you will be moving to rent the most suitable size of bin. The National Asphalt Pavement Association has actually given guidelines on asphalt weight calculations. According to NAPA, asphalt density weight is 145 pounds per cubic foot and 3,915 per cubic yard.
Proper Way to Load an Asphalt Bin
Asphalt must be properly loaded into the bin for safety, and also, because of the disposal guidelines, asphalt bins should be entirely restricted to asphalt. If you require a mixed-use bin for asphalt and other products such as concrete, you can rely on us to provide the same. When you pack the bin with asphalt, make sure that it is packed 12- to 18-inches from the top of the bin to ensure secure transport from the job site to the waste disposal facility.
Another point you need to consider when packing an asphalt bin is that the weight of the asphalt combined with the weight of the bin has the possibility to damage the storage area. That’s why it is highly recommended to use plywood beneath the bin to allow even more even weight distribution as well as to reduce the threat of damage.
