Ask the Curbside Hotline Operator: What do I do with hazardous materials?

Can of bug sprayQ: As I clean out my garage — what do I do with hazardous materials?

A: Household hazardous waste such as paint, chemicals or cleaners should be taken to one of Metro’s household hazardous waste disposal sites. These materials don’t belong in any of the curbside containers.

Many common home and garden products are considered household hazardous waste. Look for the warning words by reading labels: caution, toxic, corrosive, pesticide, combustible, poison, flammable, warning or danger.

These items need special treatment and should be disposed of responsibly to help protect the health of children, wildlife and watersheds.

Never pour these products down the drain or onto the ground. And don't put them in your garbage. They contain potentially dangerous chemicals.

There is a $5 fee to dispose of an average load of household hazardous waste of up to 35 gallons at the Metro sites.

Interested in disposing other items not accepted at the curb?
Contact the Metro Recycling Information online or call 503-234-3000.

Portland Off-road Cycling Master Plan project is recruiting members for advisory committee

Committee members will advise City staff on new citywide plan for off-road cycling trails and facilities

In addition to a broad community outreach and engagement process, a Project Advisory Committee will guide the development of the Portland Off-road Cycling Master Plan. The Advisory Committee will advise staff throughout the development of the Plan and will have the opportunity to submit a Committee report in the Plan’s transmittal to City Council.

The Committee will include 15 at-large community representatives, ideally including:

  • Trail and park users.
  • Portlanders with interests, skills, knowledge and expertise in off-road cycling, environmental stewardship, trail design or management, outdoor recreation, business, tourism and health.
  • Members who might be able to contribute perspectives or experiences from historically under-represented or under-served communities, such as communities of color, Portlanders with limited-English proficiency, low-income residents, youth, and Portlanders with disabilities.

The City is particularly interested in members who can bring and consider multiple perspectives and who can think creatively about off-road cycling opportunities citywide. 

The Committee will meet approximately monthly for up to one year. Translation, accommodations and childcare will be provided with advance notice.

Statement of Interest must be submitted no later than Wednesday, November 18, 2015 at 5 p.m.
