Illegal Dumping and Litter Abatement Task force

WHAT IS IT?

illegal dumping and littering button nt The Illegal Dumping and Litter Abatement Task Force (IDALATF) is a working group with members from local city and county governments, solid waste haulers and landfill operators, law enforcement, business leaders in agriculture, members of the community, as well as private landowners and ranchers, whose only focus is to reduce illegal dumping in Monterey County.

Initially created by the County Administrative Office in May of 1996, and subsequently approved by the Board of Supervisors, the task force began as an ad hoc committee with a mission to reduce illegal dumping through public education and community clean-ups, enforcement of mandatory garbage requirements, and inter-agency cooperation.

Today, our mission is the same - reduce illegal dumping in Monterey County. The impact of illegal dumping to the community comes at a cost affecting public health and safety, land values, quality of life, environmental contamination, and food safety. We are committed to solving this problem.

The Monterey County Health Department, Environmental Health Bureau is chair of the IDALATF and meetings are held monthly. The public is welcome to attend.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE AND/OR BECOME A MEMBER?

The efforts to mitigate illegal dumpsites and litter is a task that must be addressed through a unified effort of community, and state and local public agencies, by way of education, increased recycling, funding of clean-up activities, and action.

NEXT MEETING

Everyone is welcome to attend the IDALATF meetings, discussing and taking part in a collaborate effort to mitigate illegal dumping. Your feedback is important to us!
