Councilmember Pine is committed to preserving our open spaces and fighting illegal dumping from happening in our communities. When residents contacted Councilmember Pine with concerns regarding debris, trash, and compost waste being dumped in the Ewa Channel, this was unacceptable to her. In response, Councilmember Pine connected with the City’s Department of Facility Maintenance (DFM) to request a formal cleanup of the channel.
On June 23, 2016, DFM’s Division of Road Maintenance crew removed the trash and debris from the Ewa Beach Channel mouth, off of Ft. Weaver Road and Alekai Street.
Residents are encouraged to stay alert and report any illegal dumping that occurs in the area. To report improper placement of bulky items, citizens can call the City’s Refuse Division at 768-3200. In the event that residents witness an act of illegal dumping occurring, they are encouraged to call 911.
