Trash and recycling services delayed one day in observance of Memorial Day

Waste Management

Waste Management’s curbside residential and commercial trash and recycling pick-up schedule will be delayed by one day throughout the week of May 31, in observance of Memorial Day. In addition, all Waste Management operations will be closed on Monday, May 31, with normal operations resuming on Tuesday, June 1.

Waste Management customers in the City of Tehachapi and in unincorporated Kern County should place their carts out for pick-up one day later than usual, beginning Tuesday, June 1 through Saturday, June 5.

Additionally, Waste Management would like to remind customers who may be heating up the grill or cooling down in the pool that household hazardous waste like propane tanks and pool chemicals should never be disposed of in trash or recycling carts. These items can cause fires to start in waste trucks and facilities, putting employees and communities in danger.

Customer who have any questions can call customer service at (661) 822-6871.
