SECURED LOADS

At the South Dallas County Landfill, the term "SECURED" means loads must be secured in a manner that no debris in the load can be lost along your route to the landfill. (Driving slowly does not qualify as secured nor does "living in town"). Iowa law prohibits littering along any roadway.  Please secure your load with a tarp, straps, or other method to comply with the law and our policy. This is strictly enforced and fines will be handed out by the landfill, as well as, the Iowa DNR, DOT and Local Authorities.

DO NOT UNTIE OR REMOVE YOUR TARP UNTIL YOU ARE AT THE DISPOSAL AREA.
