Join family, friends, and neighbors at Paint the Town Green litter and graffiti cleanup on June 16 from 9:00AM to 1:00PM. We’ll be power-washing and painting over graffiti, scraping stickers off of street signs, and picking up trash along SE Division St., SE Hawthorne Blvd., and SE 82nd Ave. To sign up, go to solveoregon.org/paint-the-town-green and pick a neighborhood.
All training and supplies provided — and morning snacks and lunch, too!
Paint the Town Green is presented by KINK fm, Metro and the City of Portland Graffiti Program in partnership with the Brentwood-Darlington, Foster-Powell, Hawthorne-Division-Clinton, Lents and Mt. Scott-Arleta neighborhoods.
Put on your work clothes and show up to beautify the center gem of our neighborhood, Lane Middle School! At nearly 100 years old, Lane MS is still standing tall, but could use a little tidying up. Help shake off those winter blues by pruning, weeding, raking, and cleaning. (Then enjoy some fun down the street at the Learning Gardens Lab Earth Day Festival.)
Join us for our annual neighborhood clean-up event!
Bring your bulky waste, scrap metal and wood, furniture, yard debris, and more!
Suggested Donation: Car $20, Truck/Van $30, Trailer $15, Mattresses $5. NO COMMERCIAL LOADS! We accept cash, checks, and cards. Please make checks out to, “BDNA.” Look for our flier in the May issue of the The Bee to save $5!
So what is “bulky waste”? Things like chairs, sofas, lamps, mattresses, old doors, piles of cardboard or bales of old newspapers, or anything else that cannot be left curbside for regular waste pick-up. We also accept scrap metal like old metal chairs, poles, wire, cable, ducts, and locks. Plus, drop off your yard waste that can’t go in the compost bin; like branches, vines, bushes, small trees, and stumps.
On October 29th from 8:00AM-4:00PM. the Portland Bureau of Transportation, Metro, and Portland Police will be holding a FREE Recreational Vehicle Turn-in Event at Portland International Raceway. The event will offer an opportunity for residents of the City of Portland to legally transfer RV ownership of RVs that have little to no resale value to the City at zero cost to the resident. The City will then facilitate the disposal of these RVs. Currently the disposal cost of older RVs is a barrier to people who no longer want to own the vehicles. RV owners are faced with options of keeping the older vehicles in their possession, and pay a significant amount to dispose of it, or donating/giving it away. Our goal is to provide the public a way to dispose of unwanted RVs.
Requirements to Participate:
The registered owner of the vehicle must be present to sign over title to the City of Portland. The title must have their name on it.
The registered owner must be a City of Portland resident.
Only one vehicle per household [i]
We will only take vehicles from private parties, no dealerships or businesses.
The donated RVs must not contain any personal belongings.
The donated RVs must have drained tanks (grey/blackwater).
The registered owner is required to get the vehicle to the turn-in location.
Location: The turn-in location is at Portland International Raceway South Paddock (1940 N Victory Blvd, Portland, OR 97217). Follow the signs once you enter PIR from N. Denver Avenue entrance. The Raceway is conveniently located close to the Max yellow line Delta Park/Vanport station.
Please come help PPS and Lane PTA prepare to welcome students back to class this fall. We will be weeding, spreading gravel, spreading barkdust, removing invasive plants, and revamping the interior Atrium. Come meet Principal Jeandré Carbone, and Assistant Principal Mike Rowell and welcome them to our school!
Bring your whole family and all of your friends! Would your business, church group or social club like to help? Let us know! Your support of our schools is support for our community! For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
