Opportunity Details

Urgent Needs Cleanup Event at NE Holladay and 61st



Join SOLVE for an Urgent Needs cleanup event at NE Holladay and 61st on the side of the Banfield Expressway (highway I-30/I-84). During this cleanup, you will work with SOLVE staff in small groups to clean up piles of trash.

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.

This project has been funded in part by a grant from Travel Oregon.


When: Saturday October 16th, 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM

Advanced Registration Required: Pre-registration is required! Please sign up (green button below) ahead of time to guarantee your spot. 
 
Meeting Location: Volunteers will be meeting at 6034 NE Holladay St, Portland, OR 97213 on the east side of the Extra Space Storage facility. Map Link. 

What to Bring: Come wearing sturdy work boots, if you bring personal belongings please bring a backpack so you can pick up trash hands-free. Dress for the weather, wear closed-toed shoes, and long pants.
