The upper portion of the landfill disposal area is designated for those items that can be recycled. There are areas for appliances, wire, metal, BBQ grills, bicycles, cable, heavy metal, tires and wood. It is the responsibility of the customer to sort their own loads. This extends the life of the landfill and ensures the efficiency of operation. There is an extra minimum fee of $50 per load if the landfill personnel have to sort the load.
Colorado State law states in part…
…2.4) (a) A vehicle shall not be driven or moved on a highway if the vehicle is transporting trash or recyclables unless at least one of the following conditions is met:
(I) The load is covered by a tarp or other cover in a manner that prevents the load from blowing, dropping, shifting, leaking, or otherwise escaping from the vehicle;
II) The vehicle utilizes other technology that prevents the load from blowing, dropping, shifting, leaking, or otherwise escaping from the vehicle…
Any person who violates any provision of the law commits a class B traffic infraction.
We, at the landfill, have the right to charge you $20 per load that is unsecured in addition to the normal charges.
