Culver City is at the center of economic, cultural and environmental growth and change. The City's Division of Environmental Programs & Operations (EPO), as part of the Public Works Department, has championed significant efforts to provide environmental education opportunities as well as improve services in the areas of resource conservation, environmental and public health protection, and solid waste diversion.
Tackling Culver City's environmental challenges requires hard work, cooperation and a commitment from City staff as well as every individual, business and institution in the city. By working together, we can all ensure we are protecting and beautifying the City for generations to come.
