Mt. Vernon Green Waste Facility Hours Changed Temporarily

Following the City Manager’s declaration of a local emergency in response to the COVID-19 health crisis and Governor Gavin Newsom’s Executive Order (N-33-20), the City of Bakersfield is limiting staffing to those who provide essential services only.

As a result, the Mount Vernon Recycling & Composting Facility at 2601 South Mount Vernon Avenue will temporarily change its days of operation.

Effective immediately, the facility’s operational times will be:

  • Tuesday through Saturday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The City will continue to provide vital health and safety services to our community. We appreciate your patience and cooperation during this time.
