Opportunity Details

Central Eastside - Pick It Up, Portland!

SOLVE and the City of Portland invite you to join Pick It Up, Portland! - a two day, city-wide event focusing on litter removal throughout our community. This event is a litter cleanup and will not include graffiti removal. Help keep Portland clean and healthy and ensure it can be enjoyed by all!
When: Friday, July 17, 2020
Meeting Location: Volunteers will meet on the Eastbank Esplanade behind OMSI. From the North Parking Lot, walk toward the river and turn left (south) on the Esplanade. Follow the path behind OMSI and look for SOLVE signs and the check in table. MAP.
What's Provided: Heavy-duty garbage bags, litter grabbers and vinyl gloves.
What to Bring: Please come wearing a face covering, closed-toed shoes, with a filled reusable water bottle and sunscreen. If you have your own gloves, litter grabber, and litter bag, or bucket, you are encouraged to bring those as well. Observe social distancing throughout the cleanup.
Staggered Check In: Event check in will run from 10:00 - 10:45 AM. Arrive any time during this window. This will allow for a smaller crowd than checking in all at once. The event will run through 12:30 PM.
Restrooms: Public restrooms will not be available during this event. Please plan accordingly.
Parking: Please use public transit if possible. Plan your ride at OMSI will let volunteers park in their North Parking Lot for free. No need to pay or put anything on your windshield during the duration of the project. Please find a map of the North Parking Lot here.
