When it comes down to it, the Department of Environmental Services (ENV)
takes care of everything we don't want anymore — the wastewater from
our drains, the trash and green wastes from our homes and lawns, along
with debris washed from the land by storm water.
Every day, ENV collects and treats about 105 million gallons of wastewater along with gathering our trash from the curb and disposing of it six days a week.
But while ENV provides these services, the department's larger mission is to
work in partnership with the residents of the City & County of Honolulu
to make sure our island has a clean, safe environment.
ENV works with businesses, individuals and sister agencies to foster a sense
of joint responsibility for our aina to protect our
ENV takes seriously its part to lay the best plans for the future, while working within the fiscal constraints of the present and to educate the public on measures that will help protect public health and the environment.
