Cover Your Load

Remember: You are required by law to cover the trash load you're hauling.  The Clark County Uncovered Load Ordinance establishes a surcharge for uncovered loads of garbage and/or recyclables delivered to transfer stations.  Any load with visible waste will be subject to a surcharge, unless the waste is visible only through a secure covering or the waste is not capable of causing a litter problem.

Tips for securing your load from the Washington Department of Ecology.
