Proper Way to Load an Asphalt Bin
Asphalt should be properly packed inside the bin for safety, and, due to the disposal standards, asphalt containers must be entirely dedicated to asphalt.

When you pack the bin with asphalt, make sure that it is loaded 12- to 18-inches from the top of the bin to guarantee safe transport from the work site to the garbage disposal facility.

That’s why it is highly recommended to use plywood beneath the bin to enable more even weight allotment as well as to reduce the chance of damage.
