Antelope Valley Illegal Dumping Task Force

The Antelope Valley Illegal Dumping Task Force was formed pursuant to the Board of Supervisors' instruction of April 9, 1996 due to illegal dumping in the Antelope Valley area. The Task Force meets to discuss and coordinate illegal-dumping prevention programs in the County unincorporated Antelope Valley area. Residents are encouraged to participate in various FREE of charge events such as, Mattress Collection, Tire Collection, Disposal Day at Lancaster Landfill, Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) and Electronic Waste mobile events and permanent drop off center. Coordinated volunteer community cleanup events may receive a donated Waste Management roll-off bin. Contact Waste Management's Public Sector's Solutions Manager, Mr. Josh Mann by email at

The Task Force also provides County unincorporated Antelope Valley area residents funded programs to educate residents on the effects and decrease of illegal dumping. Funding is contingent upon annual budget. Funded programs include:

  1. Roll-off bins (to assist residents impacted by nuisances of illegal dumping)
  2. Half-ton landfill voucher (up to two per resident, per year)
