Do I have to tarp my load?
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 within the town"). Whether you use a tarp, straps or some other method, you may not litter along the roadway or be a hazard for debris/items coming loose while in route.This is an Iowa Law!!
The landfill will charge an additional $10 fee for each unsecured load. The DOT, DNR and State Officials can also charge additional fines and fees. ____________________________________________________________________________
