What's Up in Stallion Springs?
August 29, 2020
It's that time of year when the deer and elk are out with their young looking for food and water. You need to be careful as they can cross the roads without warning at any point. Be especially careful of one of the young lagging behind mom and suddenly deciding to cross to catch up. Protect our wildlife and avoid damage to your vehicle.
Police Department says thanks
On behalf of all officers of the Stallion Springs Department Chief Gary Crowell would like to personally say thank you to the entire Tehachapi community for your ongoing support of our Department during these difficult times. Over the past several weeks we have received an overwhelming amount of support and have exchanged kind words with residents and community organizations throughout Kern County. It has truly been an honor spending time interacting with you, listening to you and praying with you. Relationship building is the process of developing social connections, and it is something we can all participate in together to help make a stronger community for us all. Our main priority remains the same, to protect and to serve you and your families so that you may continue to feel safe in your community. We are blessed to work in such a wonderful, supportive community and we are humbled and honored to serve you.

The new green waste area is great! So much easier for all residents as you can now just put your trimmings on the ground in the designated area. NO BAGS ALLOWED, only small branches, grass, hay and leaves. NO MANURE (all manure MUST go to the Tehachapi Landfill). Do not leave large tree stumps or logs in our green waste area or you will be subject to citation. This site is for chippable items only. FREE MULCH is there and ready for any and all residents to take and use in their own yards. TRASH BINS: These bins are for basic household trash only. Check our website for more details. E-WASTE: E-waste bins are available and are only to be utilized for items such as printers, computers, lamps, etc. (small corded appliances only). No light bulbs or liquids of any kind. RECYCLING: Unfortunately, this area is still a work in progress. If the bins are full or not available please take your items home and wait, otherwise you can place them in the trash bins for now. Bottles, cans, plastics and cardboard will be accepted but ALL cardboard MUST be flattened before throwing into the bins. We are looking forward to the change and loving the way the new site is coming along! Thank you in advance for your cooperation on this.
