landfill costs

Postby roberterik » Fri Mar 21, 2014 8:44 am

Dear Members, I see the latest input about landfill costs about 1 year ago.
Who can update?
I have the feeling prices go through the roof at the monent.
What for 6 wheel, what for 10 wheel?

Where you are will greatly impact your price, give the experts your location so they can quote accurate info

Hi Roberterik,

Don't know where you are based, but there is a large part of the UdonThani Ring Road being widened/worked on, southern side down around Ban Chan, and they are constantly bring in lots of loads of good looking clean fill.

Given the volume they are bringing in for their road works, I suspect that if you talk with them you will get it at a good market price.

Hi Rob,

I'm out in Roi Et area, my partner's uncle had a few loads delivered about 2 months ago 6 wheeled trucks @ 200b per load. The fill was ok quality had a few rocks in amongst it, however as the guys have said the price may be different depending on where you are. Hope that helps.

TB 200 per six wheel truck load is a very good price, even if it has a few rocks in it. I paid more than that 2 years back in Udon Thani, when I had my land filled (paid around TB 350 per six wheeler, then) .

The best I was quoted one year back (in Udon Thani) was TB 500 per 6 Wheel Truck load

I would happily pay TB 350 per load now

Doing land fill outside Chiangmai. Was told normal 6 wheel truck was 500 baht last year. Now up to 700. One company was even quoting 1000bht because they had to drive up the hill :-)

Around Prachinburi we have been quoted from 800b to 1400b a 10 wheel load.Price depends on how they have to travel and who is getting a cut out of it.Its big business I went to three different quarries and one had all new trucks and digger loaders. Loads of money!

I just had land fill in Sisaket. The price varied depending on how many trucks you needed. We needed 400 6-wheelers. The price was 200 per truck. If below 100 trucks they said they charged 300 per truck usually.

Plenty talk about trucks with wheels which confuses me.............not a hard thing to do :0)

Could someone simplify it for me. land is 550 sq mt...........

How high above the road on average should one fill?

How many sq mt at the height you suggest would 1 truck cover.

At 600 baht per load how much should I expect to pay to fill land the above size.

Thanks in anticipation of your help

Hi just keep in mind that a typical 6 Wheel Truck holds about 5 m3 Bulk Fill and a 10 Wheel Truck Holds about 9 m3 Bulk Fill. Start by working out how many m3 of Fill you need

Re your Question: How high above the road on average should one fill? It depends on your area and its potential to flood and likely 20-30 years flood level height. If you are not in a major flood prone-catchment area and you are not subject to river over flooding nearby and you are just subject to normal heavy rains which tend to drain away, then I would suggest that you raise the land 400 - 500 mm above the road level. Where exactly are you?

So assuming you are paying
1. TB 400 per 6 Wheel Truck, then you are paying TB 80 per m3 (cubic meter)
2. TB 700 per 10 Wheel Truck, then you are paying TB 78 per m3 (Cubic meter)

Depending on where you are a 6 Wheel Truck of Fill (5 m3) can cost you from TB 300 up to TB 600, or from TB 60 to 120 per m3 of fill

At TB 300 per 6 Wheel Truck Load: If you are planning on raising your 550 m2 of land area by 1 meter in height, then your 550 m3 of fill will most likely cost you : 550 x TB 80 = TB 44,000, but allow another 15% (extra TB 6,600) for the Bulking Factor, i.e when the fill is compacted down. A budget of around TB 50,000 to raise your land 1 meter in height

At TB 600 per 6 Wheel Truck Load: If you are planning on raising your 550 m2 of land area by 1 meter in height, then your 550 m3 of fill will most likely cost you : 550 x TB 120 = TB 66,000, but allow another 15% (extra TB 9,900) for the Bulking Factor, i.e when the fill is compacted down. A budget of around TB 76,000 to raise your land 1 meter in height.
Of course if you raise it less than 1 meter your cost will be less.

Hope this helps

I alway understood that when you dig out undisturbed ground it becomes 1 third bulkier (30%) so I presume you need 30 % more delivered than the cu mt area you are filling by the time it is compacted down to the required level . That is what I have always been told , but I wouldn't be surprised if I'am wrong and that is a conservative estimate.
