Cleaning up Portland, One Neighborhood at a Time

Detrash Portland connects like-minded volunteers who want to tackle the issue of litter in Portland. Each week, we support events throughout the city, provide cleanup supplies, safety information, and disposal assistance for anyone who would like to improve their neighborhood through the simple act of cleaning up. We take pride in Portland and know that cleaning up is an easy and effective way to give back. Join us at an upcoming event and become a part of the Detrash Portland movement!

Create Your Own Cleanup Event

If a cleanup you are interested in is full, or if an event does not fit with your schedule, you are welcome to Create Your Own event. Once your event is approved, you can order free cleanup supplies such as heavy-duty garbage bags and vinyl gloves. To get started, please click on one of the buttons below. You will have the option to keep the event private, as just a group of you and your friends, or open it to the public and have it displayed on this webpage. Please allow for a minimum of two weeks to plan your event. Check out SOLVE's Event Safety Guidelines during COVID-19 for recommendations on how to safely plan an event.
