BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) – Bakersfield City Council approved an expansion of the city’s Biohazard Waste Cleanup Services in downtown Bakersfield – also known as Poop Patrol.
The program, launched in September 2019, dispatched workers to search the downtown streets for human waste. Originally slated to end in May 2020, its success and public approval has maintained it. A city council vote on Wednesday evening will provide nearly $ 44,000 in additional spending on the contract with Asela Environmental Inc.
The new agreement also provides for a larger area of downtown Bakersfield to cover. Patrols will be added on F and 24th Streets and Union Avenue.
