Secure Loads Reminder
In accordance with Manitoba’s Highway Traffic Act (HTA) section 61(2), the City of Steinbach enforces the securing of loads for all vehicles entering or exiting the Steinbach Landfill facility.
HTA section 61(2) states: No person shall operate, or permit to be operated, upon a highway any motor vehicle or trailer unless the load that the motor vehicle or trailer is carrying is firmly bound, sufficiently covered, or otherwise secured or loaded, in such a manner that no portion of the load may become dislodged or fall from the motor vehicle or trailer (The Highway Traffic Act).
This provision applies to pickup trucks and/or trailers of any size and is intended to facilitate road safety by eliminating risk of loose and flying debris from unsecured loads. If you are stopped by a law enforcement agency for violating HTA section 61(2), you could receive a fine.
All bulky loads must be tarped and larger items secured with adequate tie-down straps or rope. Failure to properly secure loads entering or exiting the Steinbach Landfill will result in a $10 surcharge over and above regular fees.
Any questions regarding this notice may be directed to the City of Steinbach Solid Waste Department Head, Eldon Wallman, at 204.346.6532 or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
