Do I need to secure my load when going to the Landfill? 2017-07-31T17:08:03+00:00

All loads entering the landfill must be secured in such a manner that none of the load escapes the vehicle during transport. Examples of ways to secure loads include: rope, bungees, tie downs, tarps or cargo nets. For instance, a pickup carrying loose leaves in the bed would require a tarp and rope to be considered secure.  Violation of the secured load ordinance will result in $10.35 per load fee for pickups and a $51.25 per load fee for large vehicles and trailers.
