DO I NEED TO SECURE MY LOAD WHEN GOING TO THE LANDFILL?
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 a fee.
