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 host 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
