All trailer and vehicle loads must be covered with a tarpaulin and properly secured for the safety of other road users, and to prevent littering.
If any material falls from your vehicle or trailer, you may receive a Council fine. If the littering occurs from an uncovered or unsecured load, you may also receive a much larger court-imposed fine.
This applies to loads that contain loose household garbage, hard and green waste, building materials, mulch, sand, soil and any other materials.
Tie your tarp securely with rope and make sure that items cannot blow or bounce out if you drive over a bump or brake suddenly.
