What size Asphalt Bin do I need?
One of the most important points that you need to know prior to renting our asphalt bins is that it is an exceptionally hefty product. It is such a heavy product that you will not just require a bin capable of handling the weight of the asphalt, but also a sturdy vehicle to haul the bin filled with the asphalt waste.
Calculating Asphalt Weight
Before scheduling one of our asphalt containers, you will first need to calculate the quantity of product you will be moving to rent 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 pounds per cubic foot and 3,915 per cubic yard.
Proper Way to Load an Asphalt Bin
Asphalt needs to be properly loaded inside the bin for safety, and, due to the disposal guidelines, asphalt containers need to be exclusively dedicated to asphalt. If you require a mixed-use bin for asphalt and various other products like concrete, you can rely on us to provide the same. When you fill the bin with asphalt, make sure that it is loaded 12- to 18-inches from the top of the bin to guarantee secure transport from the job site to the garbage disposal center.
One more 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 strongly suggested to use plywood under the bin to allow for even more even weight distribution in addition to decrease the risk of damage.
