Whether you plan to keep it through the new year or just through the evening, it’s time to think about where your Christmas tree is headed.
The city of Bakersfield is teaming up with local colleges to help out. You can now deliver your tree to the southwest part of Bakersfield College, at the intersection of Haley Street and University Avenue.
You can also recycle trees at Cal State Bakersfield, at the southwest parking lot along Camino Media, or at the Kern County Fairgrounds parking lot on P Street and Belle Terrace.
The recycling program continues through January 13.
