Thank you, 2021 volunteers!

In 2021, a total of 1,515 volunteers came together and removed an estimated 14,025 pounds of trash from business fronts, parks, and neighborhoods at 26 projects throughout Portland. Volunteers collected large items like couches, pieces of furniture, and car tires, as well as small pieces of litter like bottle caps, cigarette butts, and plastic bottles. 



SOLVE supports statewide projects year-round, every week and weekend. Check out our Events Calendar to find a project near you.
