What size Asphalt Bin do I need?

It is such a heavy material that you will not only need a bin capable of handling the weight of the asphalt, but also a heavy-duty vehicle to carry the bin full of the asphalt material.
Calculating Asphalt Weight
Before booking one of our asphalt bins, you will initially need to figure out the quantity of product you will be moving to order the best 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 also 3,915 per cubic yard.
Proper Way to Load an Asphalt Bin
Asphalt needs to be correctly loaded inside the bin for safety, and also, due to the disposal guidelines, asphalt bins should be entirely assigned to asphalt. If you require a mixed-use bin for asphalt as well as 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 filled 12- to 18-inches from the top of the bin to guarantee safe 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 together with the weight of the bin has the potential to cause damage to the storage space. That’s why it is strongly suggested to utilize plywood underneath the bin to enable more even weight allotment as well as to decrease the chance of damage.
