Opportunity Details

Urgent Needs Cleanup Event at NE Killingsworth and 102nd

Join SOLVE for an Urgent Needs cleanup event in the Northeast Parkrose Neighborhood. This cleanup event will take place on NE Killingsworth between 102nd and 105th. 

This part of NE Killingsworth has become a target for dumping. Volunteers will work with SOLVE staff in small groups to clean up piles of trash in multiple areas in the area.

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 is funded in part from a grant from Travel Oregon.
