(Victor Valley)– First District Supervisor Robert A. Lovingood praised County Code Enforcement for collecting more than one ton of trash from an illegal dumping site.
Lovingood encouraged residents to report code enforcement issues and he highlighted the agency’s smartphone app that can be used to file complaints in unincorporated areas.
“This site has been a nuisance, so I am happy to report that Code Enforcement picked up 1.16 tons of trash and debris along with 32 tires,” Lovingood said.
County Code Enforcement officers parked an over-size dumpster in the area east of Adelanto High School in mid-November. The dumpster was filled with illegally dumped trash from surrounding streets. Lovingood thanked Code Enforcement Director Andy Wingert and Code Enforcement Supervisor Ignacio Nunez for their help.
“While this effort won’t solve the problem of illegal dumping, this clean-up is another step in the right direction,” Lovingood said. “Illegal dumping is a community-wide problem and we need the public’s help. So I encourage residents to report illegal dumpers to Code Enforcement or to WeTip.”
