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. Grants (provided to schools, non-profit organizations and other community-based organizations)
  3. Proper tire recycling (facility fee reimbursement for tires collected at various volunteer community cleanup events)
  4. Community cleanup efforts or community education outreach
  5. Task Force representatives (sent to conferences, workshops, community events)

Requests for Task Force funding requires the matter be placed on the meeting agenda, include a proposal with each presentation and provide how funding will benefit communities consistent with the mission of the Task Force.

Task Force meetings begin at 2 p.m. on the first Wednesday of the even months..

To add an agenda item, please send your request to the AVIDTF secretary by email five (5) business days prior to a scheduled regular meeting.

The next hybrid meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, June 5, 2024.
