Trash Trash Collection/Illegal Dumping

Franchise Solid Waste Collection System

The Franchise Solid Waste Collection System was developed to provide County unincorporated area residents and businesses with enhanced solid waste and recyclables collection services. As a result, this franchise system has helped to establish quality trash collection and recycling service, increase accountability, improve customer service, and promote cleaner neighborhoods.

Garbage Disposal Districts

The Garbage Disposal Districts (GDDs) are unincorporated County areas in which trash collection and recycling services are provided to residents and businesses by contract waste haulers. The GDDs have helped to establish quality trash collection and recycling service, increase accountability, improve customer service, and promote cleaner neighborhoods.

Stop Illegal Dumping

You can do your part to help combat the illegal dumping problem. Please visit our Illegal Dumping Website to report illegal dumping incidents, inquire about illegal dumping case status, access helpful links on recycling, and obtain information about the Antelope Valley Illegal Dumping Task Force.

Illegal Trash Container Placement

Pursuant to Title 20, Section 72 of the County of Los Angeles Code of Ordinances: "No person shall place any solid waste, or any container containing solid waste, at any place of collection before 5:00 p.m. of the day preceding the scheduled collection of said solid waste, or leave any such container at the place of collection after 8:00 p.m. on the day of actual collection, or more than two hours after actual collection, whichever is later." To report illegally placed trash containers, please contact the Department of Public Health at 1 (888) 700-9995 or report the problem at their website by clicking here.

Bus Stop/Shelter Trash

In an effort to reduce the amount of trash from our roads and to prevent it from getting into our storm drain which leads to the ocean, the County has installed trash bins at most bus stop locations within the County unincorporated areas. If you want to report a dirty shelter or excess trash, please call (626) 458-3961.
