This can be done daily in Lancaster for Lancaster residents, super easy drive through recycle center.
Come on Palmdale, get with it.

Where is that?
My idea of free waste disposal in Lancaster is just pull up on Lancaster Boulevard and shove it out the door, but I’m guessing that’s not what you mean…
Lancaster maintenance yard on H.
They take engine oil, paints solvents, electronics, furniture, mattresses. Pretty much everything and it’s super easy drive through design with friendly workers.
There is even an area to drop off oil and recyclables after hours for the earth conscious tweekers.
