Approximately one half of all the litter on NC highways comes from unsecured loads. Trash is blown from vehicles not properly secured. This is a littering offense just as serious as intentional littering.
Penalties for littering in NC include fines up to $2,000 and community service. An unsecured load at the Tuscarora Landfill and Transfer Stations can cost twice the amount of the invoice.
