Yakima County Solid Waste, in partnership with Washington State Department of Ecology, will be giving away 500 cargo nets to emphasize the importance of securing your load while hauling waste and debris to Yakima County Landfills. Cargo nets will be available on the 3rd & 4th of June at Cheyne Landfill, 4970 Cheyne Road, and again on the 10th & 11th at Terrace Heights Landfill, 7151 Roza Hill Drive.
“Unsecured Load” means a shipment of solid waste in or on a vehicle that is not covered with a tarp, inside an enclosed vehicle or otherwise secured or tied down by safety chains or other fastening devices in a manner that will prevent materials from spilling, escaping, falling or being blown or deposited outside the vehicle while the vehicle is in motion. Fines at the landfill can be $6 for a passenger vehicle to $18 for trucks.
