L.A. County Workers to Clean Up Illegal Dumps

April 13, 2002|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Five illegal dump sites in the Antelope Valley will be cleared of more than 200 tons of waste by Los Angeles County Department of Health Services workers next week, authorities said Friday.

Discarded appliances, furniture, garbage, tires and construction and yard debris will be hauled away in a cleanup funded by a $30,000 grant from the California Integrated Waste Management Board, said project manager Chris Mastro.

Cleanup sites are at the Lancaster intersections of 30th Street West and Avenue E, 7th Street East and Avenue H-8, and 90th Street West and Avenue L. The other two sites are at the intersections of 150th Street East and Avenue Q near Lake Los Angeles and 96th Street East and Avenue V in Littlerock.

Mastro said he takes the cleanup job "very personally."

"I don't want the site to revert to what it was. If I see trash material, I'll get it removed," he said.
