Community Outreach

Public education and community outreach are ongoing activities for the Department. Effective communication is a must to ensure efficient management of the waste stream. Staff members participate in community and business events, street fairs and public speaking opportunities. Written materials, face-to-face discussions, website activity, radio and television commercials, press conferences and media events are important outreach tools to get the Public Works message to the general public. Click Here for a list of events the Public Works Department will be attending.

We also believe that education, at the elementary school level, can have a lasting impact on the future of this county. The Kern County Public Works Department, in partnership with the EcoHero Show, provides an interactive, environmental, music-and-dance based program to thousands of elementary-aged students each year.
