BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Two trash drop-off events are being held today for residents to dispose of bulky items.

Furniture, mattresses, box springs, major appliances, electronics, water heaters and barbecue grills will be accepted. Items that won’t be accepted include propane tanks, construction materials, any item with refrigerant, items weighing more than 300 pounds, household hazardous waste, liquid waste and hazardous materials.
