Covered Pickup Beds


Pickup/trailer loads must be covered. Failing to do so may result in an "uncovered load" charge. Covering of refuse loads is required under littering regulations as well as California Vehicle Code, Section 23115: (a) No vehicle transporting garbage, swill, used cans or bottles, wastepapers, waste cardboard, ashes, refuse, trash, or rubbish, or any noisome, nauseous, or offensive matter, or anything being transported for disposal or recycling shall be driven or moved upon any highway unless the load is totally covered in a manner that will prevent the load or any part of the load from spilling or falling from the vehicle.
