Earth Month cleanups this Saturday

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The city's Storm Water Quality Branch of the Department of Environmental Services will hold three cleanups on Saturday, April 18, as part of Earth Month at Kahawai Stream, Wailupe Stream and Kaimuki.

Volunteers will get to clean up these areas by picking up debris and tending to the native plants in the area. 

The two-hour Kahawai Adopt-A-Stream cleanup starts at 9 a.m. and is coordinated by Weinberg Village and Hawaii Job Corps. The Kaimuki Adopt-A-Block cleanup runs from 8-9 a.m. Volunteers are to meet at Harbor Church, the event coordinator. The Wailupe Adopt-A-Stream cleanup goes from 9-11 a.m. coordinated by Mulkern Landscaping and Nursery.

ENV partners with businesses, schools, public officials, the state and military organizations. The cleanups will also provide educational materials on reducing water pollution.

Participants should be 12 years old or older, dressed to get dirty, and bring water, a hat, old covered shoes and sunscreen. All participants must sign a release form to participate.
