Department of the Environment

 

 

WELCOME TO YOUR DEPARTMENT OF THE ENVIRONMENT

 

The agency formerly known as the Department of Environmental Resources is now the Department of the Environment (DoE).  In addition to our new name, we have a new logo as you see depicted on this page. Since County Executive Rushern Baker created the Department of Permits, Inspections and Enforcement (DPIE) which assumed all building and code enforcement duties, our agency has refocused on our core environmental mission: to make Prince George's cleaner, greener, healthier and more beautiful. 

 

In turn, our logo is a refreshed, vibrant and fun reflection of DoE that suggests the fragility of our environment and the need for its care - as well as vitality and optimism for the future.

 

With our new focus we are taking innovative and sustainable approaches to our environmental challenges, including: a new organics composting program; a zero waste, resource recovery approach to our waste stream; cost saving public-private partnerships (P3) for clean water that create green infrastructure and jobs; increased partnerships to boost animal adoptions, pet foster families and low cost vet services and major investments in renewable energy generation like solar farms and electric charging stations.  

 

However, we can only be successful in meeting our green goals by engaging and empowering residents, businesses, and nonprofits in our common efforts. So expect to find us at community meetings, on social media, and in the news in the years ahead. We look forward to your partnership as we move ahead together.

 

Our office location and hours are:
