BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Many people may not know about the metro Kern County special waste facility.
It's a place where homeowners can take items such as paint, pesticides, herbicides, pool chemicals and cleaners to be disposed of.
But the special waste facility also gives these items away for free at a Stop & Shop program.
It can save homeowners money on repair projects, home-improvement projects and it also reduces the cost of disposing of good products.
The program is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday of each week and goes from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
