Nearly 200 Bags of Trash Collected by Clean City Initiative Crews in February

The recently launched Clean City Initiative clean-up crews continue to make a difference across Bakersfield.

February is the first full month of action for the teams after launching at the end of January.

Through Friday, February 19, 199 bags worth of trash have been collected, 83 mattresses have been removed from the streets, and 37 couches have been disposed of.

These clean-up teams from the Bakersfield Homeless Center and the California Highway Adoption Company are funded by the Public Safety & Vital Services (PSVS) Measure, also known as Measure N.
