The elk are helping homeowners clean up the yards before the next storm hits. The heavy rain and snow have got the grass growing at a fast pace and keeping it under control can be a problem.

General Manager

General Manager, David Aranda, said, "Changes are in store for Stallion Springs in the new year. Be on the lookout for a letter from the CSD regarding your solid waste and how the CSD has limited options in handling it. The letter will include a detailed explanation. We will be asking for you to fill out a survey and return a response. Based on the survey, there will be a town hall meeting to make decisions regarding solid waste."

Yellow Starthistle

Yellow Starthistle has returned and your help is needed to remove this threat. It is an invasive weed that at one point was eradicated in Stallion. If you have the weed on your property please remove it by digging it up by hand (do not weed whack). Place the weed in bags and dispose of it in the green waste dumpsters (this is an exception to the rule: no bags in the green waste bins). If not disposed of properly the seeds will spread. If you see the weed on CSD property, please notify the CSD so our staff can remove it.

Cleanup Day

If you missed the recent cleanup day at the CSD the next cleanup day is scheduled for April 18 at the CSD. If you have household hazardous waste it is accepted at the Kern County Disposal Site, located at 12001 Tehachapi Blvd., on the first Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to noon. Accepted items at this location include batteries, motor oil, light bulbs, sharps, pool chemicals, auto products, cleaning products, etc.

Parks and Recreation
