Opportunity Details

Sandy and 147th Argay/Wilkes Urgent Needs Detrash Event

Imagine a beautiful neighborhood street with farmland on one side and a field covered in bushes on the other...but as you approach the bushes you see dumped materials. Join SOLVE for a cleanup event and return this area to the beautiful state that it once was!

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 event will take place on the side of a road. We will mark off our workspacewith cones to avoid traffic. 

When: Wednesday, June 29, 2022, 11:00 AM to 1:00 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 the empty gravel lot on NE Sandy between 147th and 148th. MAP LINK

What to Bring: Face masks are optional, 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. Wear a hat and put on sunscreen if it is a sunny day. Also bring your cell phone, and a filled reusable water bottle. 

What's Provided: SOLVE will provide trash grabbers, trash bags, work gloves, and high-vis vests.

Parking/Getting There: Free street parking along the south side of NE Sandy on either side of 148th. This cleanup location is also less than 50 feet from a bus stop along the 21 and 23 Trimet Bus lines.
