Secure Your Load

It is important that every load that is coming to the landfill is secured properly. Failure to properly secure your load can cause your load to be lost on the road, leaving the road littered. The potential for damage to other vehicles and the potential for an accident is increased. If cleanup is required after losing your load you can be billed for the cleanup of the load. Additionally, Ada County Sheriff routinely monitors the road to the landfill. If you are detected without a secured load you can be cited.

The Ada County Landfill recommends that every load be secured.

How to Ensure Your Load Securely

  • For smaller items, such as leaves, tree branches, and general household waste covering your load with a tarp and rope will keep your load secure
  • For larger items, such as furniture, refrigerators and other large items securing them with rope to the trailer or pickup is crucial in getting the load to the landfill

The Ada County Landfill recommends that every load be secured.
