Waste Management in partnership with Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger will host a free dumping day for residents of unincorporated Los Angeles County communities in the Antelope Valley.
Residents will be able to dump one ton of trash – including appliances and furniture — per household between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 8, at the Lancaster Landfill, located at 600 East Avenue F.
People must bring a driver’s license or other proof of residency in an unincorporated area. Unincorporated areas include Lake Los Angeles, Quartz Hill, Antelope Acres, Hi Vista, Llano, Pearblossom, Sun Village, Littlerock, Valyermo, Acton, Elizabeth Lake, Lake Hughes, Green Valley, Roosevelt, Agua Dulce, Fairmont, Neenach, Three Points, Leona Valley, Desert View Highlands and Juniper Hills.
Kern County residents and people who live within the city limits of Palmdale and Lancaster are excluded from the event.
No business waste, tires or household hazardous waste – such as paint, used motor oil or batteries – will be accepted on Oct. 8.
Other free waste disposal events are also coming up in the Antelope Valley. Residents can drop off up to 10 mattresses or box springs for free between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 10, at the Public Works yard at 38126 Sierra Hwy.
