BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) – The city is hosting two large object drop-off pop-up events next month.
Residents can drop off bulky waste on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon at Kaiser Permanente Sports Village, located at 9001 Ashe Rd., And 4200 Panorama Dr.
Accepted items include regular household items that will not fit in the beige cart as well as regular recyclables that will not fit in the blue cart, including cardboard, paper, plastic containers, glass bottles and metal.
Residents are asked to separate the beige cart items from the blue cart items before arriving to help the drive-thru get around as quickly as possible. The city said residents will unload their items into designated bins provided at both locations.
Household hazardous waste, construction or demolition materials will not be accepted, depending on the city.
The city is asking everyone to wear a face mask and practice social distancing at the scene. For more information, contact the Solid Waste Division at 661-326-3114, option 3 for residential services.
The latest collection events, which took place on May 19, reported nearly 14 tons of trash, according to the city.
