City holding 2 bulky item drop-off events on Saturday


BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — The city is holding two pop-up bulky item drop-off events next month.

Residents can drop off their bulky waste on Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon at the Kaiser Permanente Sports Village, located at 9001 Ashe Rd., and at 4200 Panorama Dr.

Accepted items include regular household items that don’t fit in the tan cart as well as regular recyclables that do not fit in the blue cart, including cardboard, paper, plastic containers, glass bottles and metal.

Residents are asked to separate tan cart items from blue cart items before arriving to help the drive-thru move as quickly as possible. The city said residents will unload their items into designated bins provided at the two locations.

Household hazardous waste, construction or demolition materials will not be accepted, according to the city.

The city asks that everyone wear a face mask and practice social distancing at the locations. For more information, contact the Solid Waste Division at 661-326-3114, option 3 for Residential Services.

The last collection events, which were held on May 19, yielded almost 14 tons of trash worth of trash, according to the city.
