BPS announces first winner in the garbage day email reminders contest!

Susan and Jonathan of SE Portland 

Congrats to Susan and Jonathan of Southeast Portland! They are the first winners in the BPS garbage day reminders contest and will receive a $100 credit on their next garbage bill!

Launched in October, the contest aims to promote the City’s garbage collection day email reminder tool. This free resource sends out a weekly email on the afternoon prior to collection day to help residents take the guesswork out of which containers to set out.

For every 1,000 Portland residents who go to and sign up for the free email reminders, the City will hold a drawing to select winners to receive a prize of a $100 garbage bill credit. The contest is open to all single-family and smallplex (two- to four-unit) households and runs through March 1, 2014, or until ten winners are selected.
