Program vision statement
The East Portland Reuse, Recycle, and Clean-up program is intended to expand awareness of, and provide opportunities for, recycling and reuse of household items no longer wanted, allow disposal of household bulky waste items, and assist seniors and people with disabilities with disposal of unwanted items.
This program is brought to you by the East Portland Community Office, funded by the City of Portland Bureau of Planning & Sustainability (BPS), and Metro, and supported by East Portland Neighbors. Participants are encouraged to engage in partnerships, collaborations, and creative relationship building projects related to the clean-up events.
Who can apply?
Any group of community members with a clean-up activity taking place in the EPCO service area may apply for funding. Youth, faith-based organizations, business associations, school-based organizations, community organizations, mutual assistance associations, informal groups of neighbors and neighborhood associations are all are welcome! Partnerships, collaborations, and creative relationship building projects are encouraged.

Clean-up activities as fundraisers
Groups are permitted to fundraise at their clean-up.
When does your clean-up event need to take place?
Your clean-up event must take place between July 1, 2018 and May 15, 2019.
Disbursement of funds
These are reimbursement funds. First you spend the funds, then turn in receipts for reimbursement.
Reimbursement happens within 3 to 4 weeks from the time you turn in your receipts. Some bills, such as the drop box hauling, can be paid directly by the sponsoring organization, East Portland Neighbors. Don’t worry, EPCO staff will work with you on these technical details.
Do not spend funds you want to be reimbursed for until receiving confirmation that your funding request has been awarded.
If reimbursement is a financial hardship, please talk to us. Depending on your purchases there may be options.
