Self-haul options

Clark County has three transfer stations open to customers who have items to dispose of that are not accepted through curbside pick-up or prefer to haul their waste to a transfer station directly. Note that accepted items and hours vary based on location. Call before your go!

Safe hauling - Secure your load!

Red truck with a secured load

In the state of Washington, unsecured loads cause over 300 crashes and contribute up to 40% of roadside litter every year.  

To prevent litter and injury, the state of Washington and local ordinances require all loads being hauled to be secured and covered. Under these rules, any load with visible unsecured waste will be subject to a surcharge at the transfer station. 

We all have a part to play in keeping our roads safe and litter free. To avoid unnecessary fees and to protect our community, always secure your self-hauled garbage and recycling. The Washington Department of Ecology offers tips on securing your load.
