Secure Loads

All loads arriving at Regional District landfills and transfer stations must be secured. If you arrive with an unsecured load, a double charge may be applied. Swipe cards are invalid when a double charge is applied.

You can secure your load with:

  • cargo nets
  • ropes and chains
  • straps and bungee cords

Some loads must also be covered completely with a tarp that is tied to the vehicle and not open on any side. Loads that must be covered include:

  • loose plastic bags or paper
  • construction or demolition debris and roofing materials
  • lightweight materials or loose garbage
  • garbage in bags
  • yard waste with leaves or other lightweight debris
  • recyclable materials in open containers

If you properly secured your load it will not shift, spill or fall from your vehicle.
