FOUR COMMUNITY CLEANUPS SATURDAY, MARCH 12

 

(Tuesday, March 8, 2011) – The City’s Department of Environmental Services (ENV) will hold four Adopt-A-Block and Adopt-A-Stream events this Saturday, March 12.

 

            ENV’s Storm Water Quality Branch will sponsor Adopt-A-Stream storm water demonstration projects in Manoa (9 - 11 a.m.), Ahuimanu (8:30 – 11 a.m.), as well as Adopt-A-Block community service projects in Moiliili (8-11 a.m.) and in Waikiki (8:30 – 11 a.m.).

 

            The events focus on removing trash, debris, storm drain stenciling, along with pulling weeds and native vegetation.

 

            ENV, who partners with numerous businesses, schools, public officials, the state and military, provides general oversight of volunteer safety, supplies, trash bag disposal, education, outreach, and enforcement in adopted areas.  Volunteers will need to sign a release form at check-in.  Participants should bring water, wear a hat, old shoes, sunscreen and dress to get dirty.
