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 children.
