Opportunity Details

Urgent Need Cleanup Event at NE Marine Drive and 112th

Join SOLVE at NE Marine Drive and 112th for a cleanup in an urgent-need area in Northeast Portland. The focus of this event is pickup the large amounts of trash that have been dumped and left behind on NE Marine Drive under I-205.
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.

On January 26th we are going to leave this spot on Marine Drive in pristine condition!  During this cleanup, you will work with SOLVE staff in small groups to clean up piles of trash in the area. This event will take place on the side of a road. We will mark off our work space with cones. 
This event is made possible with support from the Northwest Environmental Defense Center.
