The Kern County Solid Waste Program is the Local Enforcement Agency (LEA) for the California Department of Resources, Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle). This division aims to safeguard public health and protect the environment. Kern County LEA’s primary responsibilities are: To oversee the handling, processing, and disposal of non-hazardous solid wastes; monitor vector control issues; monitor odors, litter, gas migration, and solid waste cover at permitted Kern County facilities. Our program also maintains new and revised Solid Waste Facility Permits and completes many permit related tasks and responsibilities.
