Urgent Needs Cleanup Event at NE Halsey and 92nd
Join SOLVE at NE Halsey & 92nd for a cleanup in an urgent-need area in the Madison South neighborhood of Northeast Portland.
SOLVE defines an Urgent Need cleanup as an area with a high concentration of litter that poses a threat to public safety and environmental quality. Urgent Need cleanups are not family friendly or suitable for anyone under the age of 18 due to an increased presence of hazardous materials. Safety guidelines will be put in place before the cleanup begins.
At this location we will be cleaning up trash in close proximity to active encampments along I-205. Volunteers will work with SOLVE staff in small groups to clean up piles of trash in one area right off of NE Halsey. This project is funded in part from a grant from Travel Oregon.
