Opportunity Details

Urgent Need Cleanup Event at NE 33rd and Sunderland

Join SOLVE at NE 33rd Ave and Sunderland Ave for a large cleanup in an urgent-need area near the Columbia Slough. We hosted an event at this location back in October of 2021 and were able to remove over 16,000 lbs of trash from this street. 16,000! Now we are coming back to get the rest!
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.
During this cleanup, you will work with SOLVE staff in a small group to clean up piles of trash along 33rd Ave. We will be working along 33rd Ave - look for SOLVE signage.

When: Saturday, January 15, 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
