Two opportunities in April to rid your home of trash.
Lancaster – During April 2021, there are two (2) opportunities to rid your home of trash at no charge. One is at the Antelope Valley Environmental Collection Center (AVECC) and the other at Waste Management’s Lancaster Landfill at 600 East Avenue F.
The other on-going program is the Voucher system.
On Saturday, April 17, you can take household hazardous waste and E-waste to AVECC. This location offers one Saturday per month throughout the year. Lake Los Angeles just had their annual HHW & E-Waste Collection on Saturday, March 27. For those who might have missed it, the AVECC is the next best chance. There will be another HHW & E-Waste in 2022. In the meantime, AVECC is ready to help you get rid of your waste throughout the year.
On Saturday, April 24, the semi-annual Disposal Day event, all of which were cancelled in 2020 due to VoCovid-19, has been revived and ready to get back to normal.
This Spring 2021 Free Disposal Day will be held for residents of the unincorporated Los Angeles County communities which include:
• Lake Los Angeles
• Sun Village
• Quartz Hill
• Juniper Hills
• Elizabeth Lake
• Lake Hughes
• Green Valley
• Antelope Acres
• All other unincorporated communities
Unincorporated-area residents with proof of address such as a driver’s license can drop off up to 1 ton of appliances, furniture and trash from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. October 12, at the Lancaster landfill, 600 East Avenue F, Lancaster.
NO business waste, tires, mattresses/box springs or household hazardous waste such as paint, cleaning products, etc., will be accepted.
In addition to those two dates and up to June 30, 2021, you may call Supervisor Barger’s Antelope Valley Office to request a Disposal Voucher. The number is 661-726-3600.
Dump up to ½ ton free with a voucher from Supervisor Barger’s Antelope Valley office. Each household can receive two (2) vouchers per year to dispose of trash. Landfill vouchers created by the Antelope Valley Illegal Dumping Task Force for unincorporated Antelope Valley residents and property owners approved by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors were made available to residents of the Antelope Valley as of October 2, 2019. Vouchers are good for one-half ton of waste, or about a typical pickup truck load. Two vouchers per household per year is the limit. This is similar to the semi-annual Disposal Days sponsored by Supervisor Barger in concert with Waste Management. Residents must provide proof of residency such as a driver’s license with current address or a Waste Management bill, utility bill, etc., to participate.
Business waste, tires, or household hazardous waste will not be accepted with vouchers. Extension of the Voucher Program will be determined at the Antelope Valley Illegal Dumping Task Force meeting.
In addition to the semi-annual Free Disposal Day events, residents are encouraged to post unwanted usable items (paint, furniture, electronics, wood, etc.) on LACoMAX.com. . This is a materials exchange website administered by Los Angeles County Department of Public Works. Please visit www.LACoMAX.com for more information.
