Christmas tree drop-off locations

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Residents in Kern County who wish to recycle their Christmas trees can do so starting today.

Residents are urged to recycle their Christmas trees in one of the following options:

  1.  In the metro-Bakersfield area, residents can place Christmas trees into their GREEN WASTE CONTAINER as long as the tree is cut into small pieces and the container lid is completely closed. Whole trees are not accepted. The garbage hauler will take it to the Mount Vernon Green Waste Recycling Facility. It’s that simple.
  2. Contact one of the non-profit organizations in Kern County that pick up Christmas trees for a small donation. 
  3. Residents can self-haul whole Christmas trees to one of 24 drop-off locations throughout Kern County (see below) from Dec. 26, 2017 to Jan. 7, 2018. If you prefer to take your Christmas trees to one of the drop-off locations, please tarp and secure your load properly.

Don’t forget to remove all ornaments, lights, and the tree stand prior to recycling the Christmas tree.
