What’s A Tonne?
That’s a great question! When you are paying for the weight you dump it’s good to know what a tonne is and how we come up with that total.
One metric tonne is equal to 2,200 pounds, roughly.
To translate that into household objects that would be like saying it’s the same weight as one clawfoot tub, refrigerator, a pull out couch, an upright grand piano, 10 boxes of laminate flooring and one wood stove all tossed into the bin, one tonne!
Thinking about what that would be in terms of shingles? One bundle of shingles averages between 50-100 pounds. One tonne would therefore amount to roughly 200 bundles of shingles.
The average bin rental weighs in between 1 and 2 tonnes. Our bins can hold up to 4 tonnes safely. So, if you happen to have a small herd of standard bison in your backyard we can probably fit them in a bin … weight wise anyway.
