The Environmental Services Division strives to make Calabasas a better place to live and work by developing environmental and pollution prevention programs, and by protecting, enhancing and restoring creeks and open space. This Division oversees the administration of an encompassing Public Education/Outreach Program designed to meet the mandated requirements of the Clean Water Act and California Integrated Waste Management Act.
Environmental Services oversees a variety of activities including the reduction and/or elimination of pollutants from storm water and urban runoff, reduction of waste going to urban landfills, recycling, household hazardous waste, and storm drain inspection and maintenance. The Division serves the Environmental Commission and coordinates environmental events and outreach such as Arbor Day, Earth Day Celebration, Creek Clean-Ups, and Environmental Excellence Award. Through recycling collections events, the Community Recycling Awareness Calendar, and other activities, the Environmental Services Division highlights the connection between the environment and the community.
