PUBLIC ADVISORY:
PG&E are sending notifications to Kern County residents that there’s a higher potential for power shut-off throughout the entire Kern County area (and much of the State of California) for the next several days. Since this potential public safety power shutoff could effect a large portion of Kern County, we’re asking all residents to be prepared.
Remember – fuel tank at least half full, three days of food and water for each member of your household, know your medication storage requirements, don’t forget to plan for your pets too, check on your neighbors, have a weather radio and batteries, and have a family plan that details what to do in case of emergency.
Do you have a medical device that you depend on and would immediately affect your health if you lost power? Such as a breathing machine or home dialysis equipment? You can contact Aging & Adult Services at 855-264-6565 or Community Action Partnership at 211 for assistance.
Utility companies will contact customers directly with information. You can visit their sites for more information at: https://prepareforpowerdown.com/

RECYCLING

The City currently has two community drop-off centers for recyclables.  Residents can recycle various items, including paper products (newspapers, cardboard, etc.), plastics #1-7 (bottles, containers, etc.), aluminum cans, and glass at these locations. It is also easy and inexpensive to add curbside recycling service through the City’s recycling hauler – American Refuse.  Most household materials are recyclable and adding curbside recycling provides additional capacity for waste.

Recycling is mandatory for commercial businesses that generate over four cubic yards of waste per week, along with all multi-family residences over 5 units. Beginning January 1, 2019 all businesses that generate over 4 cubic yards of waste must recycle organic material.  Businesses that do not comply with recycling laws are subject to non-renewal or revoking of business licenses.
