22 volunteers + 2 hours = 75 gallons of trash!


On Thursday, April 20th, 22 hardy volunteers removed trash and debris (including two gallons of cigarette butts!) from 10 green street facilities and surrounding areas in North Portland. It’s important to keep green street inlets clear so stormwater runoff can flow into the facility. Removing trash and debris keeps green streets functioning well and looking beautiful.  Widmer Brothers provided food and refreshments for the volunteers at the end of the event.  Many thanks to our sponsors Widmer Brothers Brewing, Surfrider Foundation, and SOLVE.
