Dry Creek Landfill Drivers Safety
Observe the speed limits on the landfill roads.
Safety belts must be worn by all passengers in a moving vehicle.
Use of cell phones while operating a vehicle or equipment is not allowed.
Pay attention! Always be on the look-out for off-road dump trucks or other heavy equipment on the roads.
DO NOT PASS moving vehicles.
Remember to use three-point contact when entering or exiting a vehicle.
All drivers and 3rd party contractors are required to wear the following protective items when on the active face or working in areas with high traffic patterns:
- Hard hat
- Face shield, safety goggles or safety glasses
- High vis shirts or reflective vests
- Recommend impenetrable boots (shank) above the ankle
- Recommend long pants
In addition, all vehicles entering Dry Creek Landfill will be equipped with a functioning CB radio. Dry Creek Landfill uses channel 24.
At the active tipping area, ask where to dump. Call equipment operators to find out where to dump your load.
Wait your turn, and give the right of way to trucks pulling out.
Leave a minimum of 10 feet between vehicles when dumping.
Know your blind spots and ask for help if you are unsure of clearance.
Always make eye contact with operators before backing or getting out of the vehicle. If you can’t see them, they can’t see you.
Never stand under a raised tailgate.
Before departing inspect vehicles and remove any debris before leaving tipping area.
Be sure tailgates, hoist and doors are closed or down before leaving.
Clean out and un-tarp in designated area only.
