Kern County charges $5.00 per ton, with a $5.00 minimum per load, for vehicles arriving at any Disposal Site with an untarped or unsecured load.

Fly-away litter and bulky items, from untarped and unsecured loads, often blow off or fall out of vehicles – littering the roads leading to disposal facilities. County ordinance and state law requires that trash loads be secured and tarped or fines of up to $1,000 can be imposed on violators. Canvas or plastic tarps, rope and bungee cords are simple tools residents can use to completely cover and/or secure their trash during transport.
