What size Asphalt Bin do I need?
One of the most important points that you need to know before renting our asphalt bins is that it is an incredibly hefty material. It is such a heavy material that you will not only need a bin capable of handling the weight of the asphalt, but likewise a sturdy vehicle to carry the bin full of the asphalt material.
Calculating Asphalt Weight
Before reserving one of our asphalt bins, you will initially need to determine the amount of product you will be moving to order the best size of bin. The National Asphalt Pavement Association has supplied guidelines on asphalt weight calculations. According to NAPA, asphalt density weight is 145 pounds per cubic foot as well as 3,915 per cubic yard.
Proper Way to Load an Asphalt Bin
Asphalt should be properly packed into the bin for safety, and, because of the disposal guidelines, asphalt containers must be exclusively dedicated to asphalt. If you need a mixed-use bin for asphalt as well as various other materials such as concrete, you can depend on us to supply the same. When you pack the bin with asphalt, make sure that it is loaded 12- to 18-inches from the top of the bin to ensure secure transportation from the work site to the garbage disposal center.
One more thing you need to think about when loading an asphalt bin is that the weight of the asphalt together with the weight of the bin has the possibility to damage the storage location. That’s why it is strongly suggested to utilize plywood under the bin to enable more even weight allotment as well as to decrease the threat of damages.
