Neighbors Raising the Bar on Air Quality Issues

May Spring Clean-up Events  
Metro, the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, and coalitions partner with hundreds of neighborhood volunteers at clean-ups every year. This is to encourage Portlanders to reuse, recycle, and responsibly dispose of bulky materials beyond what is picked up with regular trash collection. The goal is to divert as much waste as possible from the landfill and reduce illegal dumping by making recycling and disposal more convenient and affordable. Clean-up Schedule
