The Department consolidated its existing community outreach programs into the Community Education Section (CES) in February 1994. This innovative Section provides a multitude of educational activities both in the schools and as part of community events. Programs are designed to impart lifestyle changes and prevent the imposition of regulatory control. CES focuses on the following four programs:
- Solid Waste Reduction (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, & Buy Recycled)
- Household Hazardous Waste Disposal and Safer Alternatives
- Air Quality Awareness -- Exhaust Emission Reduction
- Used Motor Oil Recycling
CES also provides support for the four Department divisions: Air Quality Management District, Building, Environmental Health, and Planning.
