 PROJECTS

LITTER, IT COSTS YOU!

www.litteritcostsyou.org

We are not responsible for accidents

The Transfer Station/Recycling Center is video taped for security reasons.

All of us share a responsibility to Keep Georgia Beautiful. You may not intentionally litter, but if you're not securing the items in your pickup truck/trailer, they could easily become litter.

*

Trucks carrying unsecured loads dump litter onto the Peach State's roads every day. The Georgia Department of Transportation has spent $14 million in a single year picking up roadside litter and those costs continue to rise. Litter, it costs you! tax payers foot the bill!

*

Tarp It, or Get Ticketed!

*

Careless drivers could wind up picking up their own litter... wearing an orange jump suit. Under Georgia's Litter Law anything leaving a vehicle, intentional or not, is litter and can result in a citation. An arresting officer may impound the vehicle if the item(s) littered exceed 10 pounds or 15 cubic feet and the driver can be fined up to $5,000 or spend up to 12 months in jail. Don't chance it, secure your load!

*

OCGA 40-6-248:

No person shall operate any motor vehicle with a load on or in such vehicle unless the load... is adequately secured to prevent the dropping or shifting of the load onto the roadway. Any person who operates a vehicle in violation of this Code section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.

*

Do Your Part... Secure Your Load

*

YOU MAY NOT ENTER THE MADISON COUNTY SOLID WASTE TRANSFER STATION UNLESS YOUR LOAD IS TARPED/SECURED.

*

Local law enforcement will be watching for tarped/secure loads on Madison County Highways and Roads!

*

Some people think they can tarp their load at the gate to the transfer station and they have followed the law. NOT TRUE! 

the transfer station now has video camera's located around the facility.

*

This action could end in receiving a citation! 

*

THE TRANSFER STATION, RECYCLING CENTER AND KEEP MADISON COUNTY BEAUTIFUL WORK SCHEDULE WILL CHANGE BEGINNING 2009!

SUNDAY, MONDAY & TUESDAY - CLOSED

WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY & SATURDAY - OPEN

HOURS

7:00am until 5:50pm
