I love our city landfills. This isn't something I thought I'd ever say. Both Bena and Wasco-Shafter have green grass, flowers, plants and decorations displayed around the site. The staffs at the front gate and personnel directing customers have been consistently friendly and helpful.

The entire site area is well-marked, tidy, organized and -- believe it or not -- clean. Though going to the dump could be a miserable experience I say "well done" to Kern County Waste Management.
