What size Asphalt Bin do I need?
One of the most vital things that you need to recognize prior to hiring our asphalt containers is that it is an incredibly hefty product. It is such a heavy material that you will not only require a bin capable of taking care of the weight of the asphalt, but additionally a durable vehicle to haul the bin loaded with the asphalt waste.
Calculating Asphalt Weight
Prior to scheduling one of our asphalt bins, you will first need to calculate 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 lbs. per cubic foot and 3,915 per cubic yard.
Proper Way to Load an Asphalt Bin
Asphalt should be correctly packed into the bin for safety, and also, due to the disposal requirements, asphalt bins need to be exclusively dedicated to asphalt. If you require a mixed-use bin for asphalt and various other materials like concrete, you can count on us to supply the same. When you pack the bin with asphalt, make certain that it is loaded 12- to 18-inches from the top of the bin to ensure secure transport from the job site to the garbage disposal facility.
Another thing you need to think about when filling 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 location. That’s why it is strongly recommended to make use of plywood underneath the bin to enable even more even weight distribution as well as to lessen the risk of damage.
