The Environmental Division

The Environmental Division is within the Public Works Department.

The Environmental Programs Division establishes policies and programs to provide sufficient waste disposal services for Cupertino residents and businesses. The Division monitors the city's garbage contract and provides composting and recycling programs to reduce citywide waste and conserve resources with the long-term objective of generating “zero” material citywide to send to a landfill.

The Division is also responsible for ensuring the City’s compliance with the State-mandated Municipal Regional Stormwater Permit (MRP) and writing the City’s Annual Stormwater Report. The division manager represents the City on the Santa Clara Valley Urban Runoff Pollution Prevention Program - a collaborative of fifteen municipalities and agencies in Santa Clara County that are subject to the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control requirements to prevent stormwater runoff pollutants from entering municipal storm drain systems and to protect the natural hydrology of creeks, rivers and streams which drain to San Francisco Bay. 

Additionally, the Division partners with Cupertino’s Environmental Affairs Division, which sits within the Office of the City Manager, to advance Cupertino’s interdepartmental and communitywide sustainability initiatives focused on energy efficiency, renewable energy, water conservation, alternative transportation and commuting, green jobs, urban gardening and forestry, local/healthy food and more!
