The operator of any vehicle arriving at the Hinton Landfill, wood recycling center, or Garland's transfer
station which does not have a suitable cover placed over the vehicle's load, shall pay a surcharge of
$20 per City of Garland Code of Ordinances, Chapter 52, Article II, Sec. 52.47(F). The transfer station
and landfill sell tarps for $10 each, but covering and securing your load from the beginning of your trip
will be more effective at preventing litter.
