King Neighborhood Association NE Portland Litter Pick-up



 


In honor of Earth Day, the King Neighborhood Association is hosting a litter pick-up event at Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School (on the corner of NE 7th Ave and NE Wygant). You can pick any location you'd like, although we'll have a list of "priority areas", and spend as much or as little time as you'd like collecting litter. When you are finished, drop off your bagged litter at the same location and we will dispose of it for you.

This event is open to volunteers of all ages. Families with small children are welcomed to attend and can focus on picking up litter in the park. Picking up litter beautifies our public spaces. Everyone is welcome and no experience is necessary. Many hands make light work! Remember to wear a mask! 


When: Saturday April 24th, 10:00am - 12:30pm

Staggered Check In: To avoid a crowd at check in, arrive anytime between 10:00 - 10:30am for check in. Event will run until 1:00 pm.

Where: We will meet at

What's Provided: Heavy-duty garbage bags, litter grabbers, and vinyl gloves are provided to all participants that need them. 

What to Bring:  Please come wearing a mask, long pants, and closed-toed shoes. If you have your own gloves, litter grabber, litter bag or bucket, you are encouraged to bring those as well. Please also dress for the weather. This event will go on rain or shine. 

Advanced Registration: Pre-registration is required! Please sign up (Green Button Below) ahead of time so we know how many volunteers to expect, and to fill out the volunteer waiver form.

COVID Safety: ALl volunteers are instructed to wear a face covering and to observe social distancing throughout the cleanup. Children are welcome but must be accompanied by an attentive adult.
