Springwater Trail Cleanup w/ Dinner & A Movie
Join SOLVE for a cleanup in an Urgent Need 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 due to the presence of hazardous materials. Safety guidelines will be covered before the event begins.
During this cleanup, you will work with SOLVE staff in small groups to clean up trash along the Springwater Corridor trail. This event will be a collaboration with the Portland outreach organization, Dinner & A Movie, whose focus is building holistic relationships with Portland's homeless.
At this event, you may encounter or be exposed to the following elements:
- Close proximity to active unhoused communities.
- Close proximity to abandoned unhoused encampments.
- The presence of used hypodermis needles among the garbage.
- Other hazardous materials such as bio-waste.
