SECURING YOUR WASTE ON YOUR VEHICLE: Failure to secure your load can cause traffic accidents and roadside litter.Here are some tips to consider:

  • Ensure wastes and containers cannot move or shift during transport or sudden stops. Push and pull restrained wastes to test for movement before transport. 
  • When tarps and netting are used, ensure loose items such as wood pieces and plastic cannot escape around the sides or through gaps in trailer walls.
  • Wrap loads of asphalt shingles and drywall with a tarp on top, underneath and surrounding the sides. This contains nails and screws within the load, preventing them from falling off during transport.
  • Netting and tie downs are useful for restraining branches.
  • Monitor your load while driving.
