BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The City of Bakersfield’s Streets Division will be conducting its annual leaf collection from Oct. 15 through Jan. 15, 2021.

The hours of operation will be 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., though they may be extended if necessary.

During this time, residents are allowed to rake leaves into the street adjacent to the curb and gutter for collection by Streets Division equipment.

To allow for proper drainage, the City asks that leaves be left at least 24 inches from the curb face.
