What size Asphalt Bin do I need?
One of the most crucial points that you should know before renting our asphalt containers is that it is an exceptionally heavy material. It is such a heavy product that you will not only need a bin capable of taking care of the weight of the asphalt, but also a durable truck to carry the bin full of the asphalt material.
Calculating Asphalt Weight
Prior to scheduling one of our asphalt bins, you will first need to figure out the amount of product you will be moving to lease the right size of bin. The National Asphalt Pavement Association has actually provided recommendations 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 properly packed inside the bin for safety, and, because of the disposal guidelines, asphalt containers must be entirely assigned to asphalt. If you require a mixed-use bin for asphalt and other materials like concrete, you can depend on us to supply the same. When you fill the bin with asphalt, make sure that it is loaded 12- to 18-inches from the top of the bin to make sure secure transportation from the job site to the garbage disposal facility.
Another point you need to think about when loading an asphalt bin is that the weight of the asphalt combined with the weight of the bin has the possibility to damage the storage space. That’s why it is highly recommended to utilize plywood under the bin to allow for more even weight allotment in addition to decrease the possibility of damages.
