 SECURING YOUR WASTE WHILE DRIVING

Failure to secure your load can cause traffic accidents, flat tires and roadside litter. Here are some tips: 

  • Ensure waste 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 small pieces 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, preventing them from falling off during transport.
  • Netting and tie downs are useful for restraining branches.
  • Always monitor your load while driving.
