PALMDALE – The Antelope Valley Illegal Dumping Task Force has revived the landfill voucher program for residents and property owners in the unincorporated Antelope Valley.
Each voucher pays for dumping a half ton of waste, or about a typical pickup truck load. Each household or property owner in the unincorporated Antelope Valley can receive one voucher. The vouchers are not available for properties inside Palmdale or Lancaster city limits.
Communities in the unincorporated Antelope Valley include Acton, Agua Dulce, Green Valley, Leona Valley, Desert View Highlands, Ana Verde Hills, Littlerock, Sun Village, Pearblossom, Llano, Valyermo, Juniper Hills, Lake Los Angeles, Roosevelt, Del Sur, Fairmont, Lake Hughes, Elizabeth Lake, Three Points, Neenach, Oso and Antelope Acres.
Residents can can contact Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger’s office at 661-726-3600, starting Monday, July 3, and come to the office to pick up the vouchers. Proof of residency or property ownership will be required.
The Barger’s office is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, except holidays. The office will be closed Tuesday, July 4.
The landfill voucher program started as a pilot program in late 2019 but went on hiatus starting in July 2022 for lack of funding. The task force voted June 7 to revive the program for the 2023-24 fiscal year. The task force will review funding status periodically.
Voucher issuance will end when funding is exhausted or if not renewed by the task force in June 2024.
