Annual Leaf Collection Operation Returning

The City of Bakersfield’s Streets Division will be conducting its annual leaf collection operation from Oct. 15, 2020 through approximately Jan. 15, 2021.

The hours of operation will be 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., though they may be extended if necessary.

During this time, City residents are allowed to rake leaves into the street adjacent to the curb and gutter for collection by Streets Division equipment. To allow for proper drainage, the City asks that leaves be left at least 24 inches from the curb face.

The leaves are collected by specialized equipment designed for this purpose only and the public is reminded that no other debris will be collected from the streets.

For more information, please call 661-326-3111 between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
