EAST PORTLAND RECYCLE, REDUCE & REUSE PROGRAM

Argay Neighborhood Cleanup

All Community Collection Events scheduled for Spring 2020 have been canceled

• The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) is no longer funding Community Collection Events through District Coalition Offices. Click here to read the Community Collection Event Updates from BPS. 

Announcing Changes to Community Collection Events for fiscal year 2020-2021

 

The Bureau of Planning & Sustainability (BPS) has a strong commitment to bolster the reuse and repair community that puts usable items in the hands of those in need. BPS also seeks to better serve our most vulnerable community members that do not have the physical ability, transportation or financial resources necessary to manage bulky materials. In order to meet these key goals during this time of COVID-19 response and beyond, the Community Collections Event program is closing funding through District Coalition Offices, so that a deeper response can emerge.  

 

Community groups and neighborhood associations can still host collection events. If groups choose to host an event and want to have drop boxes for waste collection, they can contact any permitted commercial garbage and recycling company to set up service; rates vary. Please refer to the Resources section shared here.

 

BPS and Civic Life recognize and appreciate the leadership of the many passionate neighborhood volunteers that have made these events a success. Thanks to your dedication, over the last 18 months, these events collected 376 tons of mixed waste, and diverted over 3,000 items for reuse. We hope to build on your good work exemplified in the success of the Community Collections Events thus far and to expand enthusiasm for improving the spaces we all share.
