- Neighborhoods & Partners
East Portland community groups are invited to submit project ideas for cleaning up our neighborhoods, keeping trash out of our landfill, and engaging people in hands-on actitivities to promote sustainability!
EPNO's Community Cleanups & Recycle, Reduce, Reuse Program provides funding to support for a variety of community-driven, East Portland-based, activities that focus on ensuring bulky waist does not end up on our street corners, our streets are litter-free. In addition the program funds community activities that promote sustainability through recylcing, reusing and reducing the amount of waist that goes into our landfills. The goal is livabble, clean, shared public spaces. We place a high priority on activities that build community, create or strengthen partnerships across groups that organize based on geography and or identity, and provide access to seniors or people with disabilities.

Thank you for helping us pilot this program
We are in the third year of a pilot program to expand the reach of the Reuse, Recycle CleanUp Program! Your project helps demonstrate that there is a need and demand for this type of funding in East Portland. The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) and EPNO created this two-year pilot program to reach more community members in East Portland. Building on our existing partnership, which historically provided support for neighborhood association cleanups. BPS provides funds for the community group cleanups and EPNO provides the staff support and basic outreach. Thank you to the EPNO advisory committee for endorsing this pilot program.
