Two bins of trash collected at Taft cemetary where service members are laid to rest

Clean up comes after several complaints

TAFT, Calif. -  

The Glennville Cemetery dates back to 1830 and many of the residents of Glennville have relatives and friends who are service members laid to rest there. The residents of Glennville ask for assistance with cleaning the grounds of their cemetery in preparation of Memorial Day.

On May 21, The Sheriff’s Inmate Community work crew, consisting of 7 inmates and 1 officer, partnered with the Kern County Parks Department to meet the need of picking up litter, chopping down shrubbery, removing weeds and mowing the cemetery grounds. 

On May 22, The Sheriff’s Inmate Community work crew filled two Roll Off Bins of illegally dumped trash and yard waste.

This effort was in response to multiple complaints that were received from the citizens about several alleyways located in the area of Wood Street in South Taft. 

The Sheriff's Inmate work crew will continue to collaborate with Kern County Waste Management and the Parks Department to target high litter areas within the city and county boundaries.
