Community Collection Events (formerly Neighborhood Cleanups) are a partnership between Neighborhood Coalitions, the City of Portland and Metro in order to build capacity and invest in community by advancing equity and reducing and reusing waste. (see below for a list of prohibited materials)

They are organized to offer a wide range of Portland residents, including seniors and people with disabilities, with proper disposal of household bulky waste that often accumulates in the home and may otherwise be disposed inappropriately. The events prioritize recycling and reuse over disposal.

Cleanups take place every spring. Please check back here for event information in Spring 2019.
