Detrash Portland - Vestal School & 82nd Ave. Montavilla Cleanup


Come join Detrash Portland for another litter pick up event! We need volunteers for a community trash clean up event on Thursday, September 24th targeting NE 82nd & the Montavilla Neighborhood. Detrash Portland is collaborating with East Glisan Pizza for this event! We will have some pizza after the cleanup for all volunteers.

***This event was originally scheduled for the 17th of September but we are rescheduling it due to air quality concerns.***

After a staggered sign in we will give volunteers a quick safety briefing and then will send people out to pick up trash for 2 hours. The event will wrap up at 7:30 pm.

Where: We will meet on the north side of Vestal Elementary School at the intersection of NE 81st Avenue and NE Everett Street.

Date: Thursday, September 24th

Time: Event will start at 5:30 pm and will end at 7:30 pm. After we will have drinks and pizza provided by East Glisan Pizza for volunteers.

Staggered Check In: Event check in will run from 5:30 - 6:00pm. Arrive any time during this window. This will allow for a smaller crowd than checking in all at once. The event will end at 7:30pm.

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.

Whats Provided: We will also provide hi-vis vests, gloves, bags, and trash grabbers.

Who Can Participate: This is a family friendly event. Children under 13 can participate if they are accompanied by an attentive adult. Safety is always a priority. Trash pick up is an activity that allows us to volunteer while maintaining social distancing guidelines at all times.

What to bring: Wear a MASK at all times. Dress appropriately for the weather and wear closed toed shoes. Sunscreen and water are also recommended

About Us: Detrash Portland is a frequent event host in collaboration with SOLVE. We believe that great work can be accomplished when people come together to achieve a common goal. Many hands make light work. I can't wait to see what we can accomplish when we work together. Hope that you will join us!

Detrash Portland has recently hosted successful events at the PSU Saturday Farmers Market, the King Farmers Market, the Oregon Convention Center Plaza, and at Lillis-Albina Park. We recently filled 84 large bags with over 900 lbs of trash at our latest event. Trash pick up is an excellent activity to participate in if you are civic minded and want to give back to your community.
