Report Illegal Fireworks

What can you do when you hear/see illegal fireworks?  REPORT IT by calling 503-823-BOOM (503-823-2666)!  

Brentwood-Darlington has a serious issue when it comes to illegal fireworks.  Last year two houses in our community were destroyed by fire due to illegal fireworks.  A few days ago, neighbors found this chunk of metal from a mortar (pictured below) smoldering in their yard. Luckily, no one was injured and no fires were started, this time.

Setting off fireworks before and after the 4th causes undue suffering and stress for children, animals, and veterans in our neighborhood.  Please report illegal fireworks and keep your own festivities safe and confined to the 4th of July. Looking for something fun to do?  Bring the family to the Brentwood-Darlington 4th of July Parade!

Holiday Garbage Service Reminder

All Portland residents with curbside collection service will have schedule changes from December 25 through January 6. There is no collection service on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day. All pick-ups will happen one day later than usual. Pickup for Friday customers will happen on Saturday during this date range.

Winter weather

If garbage, recycling and compost collection must be delayed to the next scheduled collection day, twice the amount of the current subscribed service level will be collected on the next regularly scheduled collection day at no additional charge.

In the case of severe weather, collection will be prioritized in the following order:

  1. Garbage
  2. Recycling
  3. Composting

Leave your carts at the curb and your garbage and recycling company will collect them as soon as driving conditions permit. Your company will monitor the weather and driving conditions daily.  While your street may be clear, access to and from your neighborhood may not.

Stay ahead of the weather

Sign up for a weekly email that includes weather messages and reminders for your collection day at www.garbagedayreminders.com.
