During the Thanksgiving week, residents and businesses in Bakersfield should note the
holiday trash collection schedule.
There will be no trash pick up on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22. All Thursday trash, recycling, and green-waste services will be made the next day, Friday, November 23. Friday collections will be made on Saturday, November 24th. The Mt. Vernon Green Waste Facility will also be closed on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22nd, reopening again Friday, November 23rd at 7am.
Disposing of used cooking oil and grease down their drain can clog pipes and cause backups, instead residents can stop by the City’s Holiday Grease Collection and dispose of used oil and grease in a safe and environmentally friendly way. Residents are asked to collect their used cooking oil and grease in sealed containers and drop it off at the event. There is no charge to dispose of the oil and grease.
