Q&A: Markings on a Bulk Packaging (Roll-off)

Another question through the Contact Me page of my website on April 3, 2016:

Dear Daniel,
A bulk container (rolloff box) requires to display the UN number in the sides?
Best Regards

My reply the next day (4.4.16):

Yes.  Pursuant to 49 CFR 172.302(a), a bulk packaging must display the identification number on all four sides if it has a capacity of 1,000 gallons or more and on two opposing sides if it has a capacity of less than 1,000 gallons.

Pursuant to 49 CFR 172.302(b), markings on a roll-off must have a width of at least 0.24 inch and a height of at least 2 inches.
I hope this helps.
