How to Dispose of Asphalt

How to Dispose of Asphalt

Many larger construction projects require the removal of asphalt in some form. Though it may seem like getting rid of any other construction debris, asphalt disposal is a bit more tricky than just ordering a standard trash bin.

Throughout your area, you may find landfills to dump your asphalt and concrete or places where you may recycle it. Recycling asphalt has become increasingly popular in recent years since many cities repurpose it for paving or other landscaping projects.

Where Can I Get Rid of Asphalt?

While there are a few different options depending on your location, the best way to get rid of your asphalt is to call ASAP Site Services. We’re widely known as one of the leading asphalt hauling companies, and we have over 20 years of experience. We’ve built relationships with vendors all over the U.S. and Canada, which allows us to deliver fast and reliable customer service no matter what you’re located.

One of our clean roll-off dumpsters would be a perfect match for any project involving asphalt. A huge benefit of clean dumpsters is that they are a bit cheaper than regular roll-off dumpsters. With that in mind, the contents must be homogenous, meaning that you can’t dispose of anything else besides asphalt in the same dumpster during this project. Our clean dumpsters come in 10- and 20-yard sizes, each of them with a 10-ton weight limit. We’ll deliver them to your location and take them to an asphalt dump site when you’re done with them.

If you do decide to go with a dumpster, there are a few quick things to note. You should have an easily accessible area for drop-off and pickup. Protecting the contact surface is always a good idea, so putting down plywood for your dumpster to rest on can make sure your property stays safe. If you’re planning to place a dumpster on private land, you most likely do not need a permit. However, if you’re planning on leaving it in the street or in other public areas, contact your local municipality to see if a permit is necessary.

Asphalt Removal

Another service ASAP offers is junk removal, which can be used for smaller projects that need asphalt disposal. Junk removal service is perfect for smaller jobs that might not warrant a full 10- or 20-yard dumpster. We’ll send someone to evaluate the size of your asphalt load to give you your estimate.

Either roll-off dumpster rental or junk removal services can be booked online 24/7, or you can call us at (888) 413-5105. One of our representatives will be more than happy to walk you through the process and answer any questions you may have.

Where Else to Dispose of Asphalt

If you’re looking to go a different route, we understand that too. Beyond dumpsters and junk removal services, there are a few other popular ways for people to get asphalt off their property.

Check Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, and Freecycle

You can create a “for sale” post on any of these mediums or search them for people looking for spare asphalt. These communities can be extremely useful when trying to reuse or recycle used asphalt.

Dump It Yourself

If the project is manageable enough, there is nothing that says you cannot dispose of asphalt on your own. If you don’t know where to dump asphalt, you can typically use a local landfill or recycling center to dispose of it. Search engines are your friends when trying to find a place to dump your asphalt.

Repurpose It

If you’re a DIYer, your asphalt may have several different uses around the house. Build a new firepit in the backyard, or build a new retaining wall to add some flair to your landscaping.

If All Else Fails ….

Put your asphalt near the street with a “take me!” sign on it. Your trash just might be your neighbors’ treasure. Just be sure that it is in a safe area away from sidewalks and roads.
