Northwest Industrial Cleanup Event (Se habla español)


SOLVE / Detrash Portland needs civic-minded volunteers for another trash pickup event. Litter cleanup beautifies our city and keeps garbage from ending up in our waterways. Let’s come together and make a real impact. 
After checking in and handing out equipment we will head out into the northwest industrial area to pick up trash. This event was made possible by the Metro Community Enhancement Grant.

Pre Registration is Required: Due to the COVID restrictions, we will only be opening the event to a limited number of volunteers. If you would like to participate please sign up (Green Sign Up Button Below) quickly before spots run out.
