Opportunity Details

Urgent Needs Cleanup Event at East Burnside and 97th


Join SOLVE at East Burnside 97th for a cleanup in an urgent-need cleanup event.

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.

Volunteers will work with SOLVE staff in small groups to clean up piles of trash in multiple areas. Part of the cleanup at this location we will be cleaning up trash in close proximity to active encampments as well as areas along I-205.  

This project is funded in part from a grant from Travel Oregon.
