What size Asphalt Bin do I need?
One of the most important points that you must consider prior to renting our asphalt bins is that it is an incredibly heavy material. It is such a heavy material that you will not only need a bin capable of managing the weight of the asphalt, but likewise a heavy-duty truck to transport the bin full of the asphalt waste.
Calculating Asphalt Weight
Prior to booking one of our asphalt containers, you will initially need to calculate the amount of material you will be moving to order the best size of bin. The National Asphalt Pavement Association has actually provided recommendations 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 should be properly loaded into the bin for safety, and, due to the disposal standards, asphalt containers must be entirely 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 pack the bin with asphalt, see to it that it is filled 12- to 18-inches from the top of the bin to ensure safe transport from the worksite to the waste disposal facility.
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 potential to cause damage to the storage space. That’s why it is highly recommended to utilize plywood below the bin to enable more even weight allotment as well as to reduce the risk of damages.
