Portland, Ore., November 16, 2022 – This Wednesday morning, SOLVE hosted the Downtown Portland Cleanup Day, made possible by The Standard, with additional support from the City of Portland and the Portland Lodging Alliance.

85 Volunteers attended the event and collected approximately 800 pounds of litter and debris from city sidewalks, parks, and business fronts.

 

Attending SOLVE’s monthly Downtown Cleanup is a great opportunity to give back to the community. The last few years have been tough on Rose City, and participating in a cleanup event makes us one step closer to having a sense of normalcy once again.

 

Volunteers utilized bags or buckets to collect garbage, work gloves, a high visibility vest, and a litter grabber before receiving safety information regarding the cleanup. From 9 AM to 11:00 AM, volunteers spread out in the surrounding area, collected litter, and brought it back to the starting point for proper disposal coordinated by SOLVE. 

 

Each month, SOLVE hosts multiple cleanups at various locations throughout downtown Portland. The next Downtown Portland Cleanup will be on Wednesday, December 14. Interested community members can learn more and register for the event at solveoregon.org.

Portland, Ore. November 16, 2022, SOLVE is hosting the Downtown Portland Cleanup, made possible by The Standard, with additional support from the City of Portland and the Portland Lodging Alliance.

On Wednesday morning, volunteers will gather at check-in locations throughout the downtown corridor. SOLVE staff will provide a safety orientation, along with cleanup supplies such as litter grabbers, vests, and gloves. Once volunteers receive all the necessary cleanup information and supplies, they will begin to disperse out into the surrounding neighborhoods to collect litter.

Embracing the season of giving back, volunteers are donating their time to fill grain bags with litter that has been left on the streets. Without proper disposal, trash left on the streets has the potential to travel to our waterways by entering our storm drains and ultimately becoming marine debris. Each piece of litter that is picked up makes our city a cleaner and healthier place to live.

You are invited to join SOLVE for an opportunity to give back to your community using the link below:
