We do not accept hazardous, infectious, or liquid waste.

All loads must be covered and will be inspected before disposal as provided by State Law. R.C.T.S. reserves the right to reject any load. City Ordinance 90-997 requires that, “all vehicles used for hauling refuse within the City shall be of such construction as to comply with all laws, rules, and regulations of the state, and shall be of a type and construction to prevent leakage or overflow. All refuse in such vehicle shall be completely covered… to prevent any refuse from spilling or blowing from the vehicle.”

California Vehicle Code Sections 23114 and 23115 state that it is against the law to operate a vehicle on the highway which is improperly covered, constructed, or loaded so that any part of its contents or loads spills, drops, leaks, blows, or otherwise escapes from the vehicle. Additionally, any vehicle transporting garbage, trash, or rubbish, used cans or bottles, waste papers, waste cardboard, etc. must have the load covered to prevent any part of the load from spilling on the highway (CVC 2011).

Significant fines are possible for non-compliance.
