Don't Forget to Cover Your Load

To prevent litter and waste, Edgecombe County Code of Ordinances require that all loads of trash and debris transported on the highway are to be properly covered. You can be fined $25 for uncovered loads. If you have received that fine,  you may purchase a tarp to cover your loads and show proof of purchase at the Solid Waste Office at 2821 Colonial Road, and the fine will be dropped. For more information, call (252) 827-4253.
