Garbage bills are changing as of July 1, 2017

BPS works with garbage and recycling companies to analyze and renew rates by July 1 every year.


Calendar representationEvery year the City of Portland sets residential recycling, composting and garbage collection rates based on a thorough evaluation of what it costs to provide these services to residents. Beginning this July, rates will increase slightly for Portland customers due to increased operating costs, including fuel.

Most customers will see an increase of 10 cents on their monthly bill or less than 1 percent for the 35-gallon garbage roll cart collected every other week. This is the first recycling, composting and garbage rate increase in five years, and rates are still lower than they were in 2012.

Find new rates at www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/rates or call your garbage and recycling company.

تقوم مدينة بورتلاند في كل عام بتحديد أجور اللمّ ونقل النفايات وإعادة تدوير المخلّفات السكنية استناداً على تقييم وتقدير دقيق لتكاليف تقديم هذه الخدمات إلى السكان. ابتداءً من شهر يوليو هذا، سترتفع أجور اللَمّ والنقل بشكل طفيف لعملاء بورتلاند نظراً لارتفاع تكاليف التشغيل، بما في ذلك تكلفة الوقود.

سيرى معظم الزبائن زيادة في فاتورتهم الشهرية بمقدار لا يزيد فقط عن 10 سنتات أو أقل من 1 بالمائة لحاوية نفايات سعة 35 غالون على شكل عربة درّاجة يتم نقلها كل ثاني أسبوع. هذه هي الزيادة الأولى في تكلفة أجور اللَمّ ونقل النفايات وإعادة تدوير المخلّفات والكومبوست في خمس سنوات، ولا تزال هذه الأجور أقل مما كانت عليه في عام 2012.

يمكنكم معرفة أجور النقل الجديدة بالذهاب إلى الموقع الإلكتروني التالي www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/rates ، أو مكالمة شركة النفايات والتدوير التي تتعاملون معها.

Cada año, la Ciudad de Portland establece tarifas de recolección residencial de basura y reciclaje basadas en una evaluación detallada de lo que cuesta brindar estos servicios a los residentes. A partir del próximo mes de julio, las tarifas tendrán un leve aumento para los consumidores de Portland debido a los costos operativos más elevados, que incluyen el combustible.

La mayoría de los consumidores observará un aumento de apenas 10 centavos en su factura mensual o menos del 1 por ciento para los botes de basura con ruedas de 35 galones que se recolectan cada dos semanas. Este es el primer aumento de tarifa del servicio de recolección de basura, reciclaje y desechos orgánicos que se realiza en cinco años, y aún así, las tarifas siguen siendo inferiores a las tarifas en el año 2012.

Encuentre las nuevas tarifas en www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/rates o llame a su compañía de recolección de basura y reciclaje.

ほとんどの場合、毎月の請求書の額面で10セント、または35ガロン車輪付きカートの隔週収集サービスで1パーセント弱の値上げ幅となる見通しです。今回の一般ごみ、リサイクル、コンポスティングサービス料金値上げは5年ぶりですが、2012年時点の手数料よりもまだ低く抑えられています。

În fiecare an, orașul Portland stabilește tarifele pentru colectarea gunoiului menajer și pentru reciclare, pe baza unei evaluări amănunțite a costurilor suportate pentru a oferi aceste servicii rezidenților. Începând cu luna iulie, tarifele pentru clienții din Portland vor crește ușor ca urmare a costurilor mai mari de exploatare, incluzând cheltuielile cu combustibilul.

Celor mai mulți clienți li se va aplica o creștere de doar 10 cenți la factura lunară sau mai puțin de 1% pentru pubela de gunoi de 35 de galoane colectată la fiecare două săptămâni. Acesta este prima majorare a tarifului pentru colectarea gunoiului, reciclare și compostare în cinci ani, și cu toate acestea, tarifele continuă să fie mai scăzute decât erau în 2012.

Aflați noile tarife accesând www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/rates sau apelându-vă compania care vă oferă servicii de colectare a gunoiului și reciclare.

Ежегодно городское управление Портленда устанавливает расценки на сбор мусора и утилизируемых отходов на основе результатов тщательного анализа стоимости предоставления этих услуг жителям города. Начиная с июля этого года, расценки для потребителей наших услуг в Портленде слегка повысятся в связи с увеличением эксплуатационных затрат, в том числе затрат на топливо.

Сумма, указанная в счетах, ежемесячно выставляемых потребителям, увеличится всего лишь на 10 центов, то есть менее, чем на 1% в расчете на тележку с контейнером для мусора вместимостью 35 галлонов, которая вывозится еженедельно. Это первое за последние пять лет повышение расценок на сбор мусора, утилизируемых отходов и компостирование, причем наши расценки все еще будут ниже, чем в 2012 г.

Щороку адміністрація міста Портленд встановлює тарифи на збирання побутового сміття та відходів для утилізації, керуючись досконалим оцінюванням коштів, необхідних для забезпечення населення цими послугами. З цього липня для клієнтів у Портленді тарифи будуть трохи підвищені у зв'язку з більш високими витратами, включаючи витрати на паливо.

Для більшості клієнтів тарифи підвищяться лише на 10 центів на місяць або менше ніж на 1 відсоток за сміттєвий бак на коліщатках об'ємом 35 галонів, який забирають раз на два тижні. Це перше підвищення тарифів за збір побутового сміття, переробку відходів і компостування за п'ять років, і тарифи все одно нижче, ніж вони були в 2012 році.

З новими тарифами можна ознайомитися на сайті www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/rates або зателефонувавши в свою компанію зі збору та переробки сміття.

Hằng năm, Thành phố Portland ấm định giá cước cho dịch vụ thu gom rác thải và tái chế khu cư dân dựa trên một cuộc đánh giá toàn diện nhằm xác định mức chi phí của các dịch vụ này. Bắt đầu từ tháng Bảy này, giá cước sẽ tăng nhẹ cho khách hàng ở Portland vì lý do chi phí hoạt động, bao gồm nhiên liệu, cao hơn.

Hầu hết khách hàng sẽ thấy giá tăng chỉ 10 cent trên hóa đơn hàng tháng của họ hoặc ít hơn 1 phần trăm cho thùng rác cỡ 35 gallon được thu thập mỗi hai tuần. Đây là lần tăng giá đầu tiên đối với dịch vụ thu rác thải, tái chế và chế thành phân bón trong năm năm, và các mức giá hiện tại vẫn thấp hơn so với năm 2012.

Public invited to comment on Comp Plan/Zoning Map changes in Map Refinement Project Discussion Draft

Discrete changes to some base zones and overlay zones will synch the Zoning Map with the City’s new Comprehensive Plan Map.

A new package of Comprehensive Plan Map and/or Zoning Map changes is now ready for public review and comment. The Map Refinement Project Discussion Draft contains 144 items that are being evaluated for possible map changes; specifically:

  • 84 Comprehensive Plan Map designation and/or Zoning Map base zone changes, and
  • 60 overlay zone changes.

The scope of the Map Refinement Project was shaped by City Council’s Refinement Directive (Exhibit O) during the final stage of the Comprehensive Plan Update process in December 2016. In addition, there are several sites where development has been approved under old land use designations, prompting possible reconsideration of the new designations scheduled to go into effect in 2018.

This is also an opportunity to make additional technical corrections to the adopted map.

What is the difference between the Zoning Map and the Comprehensive Plan Map?

Summary of Potential Map Changes
Many of the items in the Map Refinement Discussion Draft reflect simple map corrections to the Comprehensive Plan Map designations and/or Zoning Map base or overlay zones. This will ensure that regulations are implemented in alignment with policy direction in the 2035 Comprehensive Plan.

Highlights include:

  • Exhibit O – Further Refinement Directive, dated December 2016
  • Reconciliation of Bureau of Development Services land use reviews between January 2013 and June 2017
  • Reconciliation of nonconforming development, as appropriate, constructed between January 2013 and June 2017
  • Technical map changes (e.g., affordable housing, City bureau coordinated, nonconforming commercial uses, overlay zone modifications, split zones)

Read the Map Refinement Project Discussion Draft

The comment period for the Map Refinement Discussion Draft ends at 5 p.m. on Monday, July 31, 2017.

Please submit comments by mail to 1900 SW 4th Avenue, Suite 7100, Portland, OR 97201, Attn: Map Refinement Project or by email: cpmaprefinement@portlandoregon.gov.

Next Steps
Staff will consider comments on the Discussion Draft to create a Proposed Draft, which will be presented to the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) for a public hearing in October 2017. The PSC will consider public testimony and then forward a recommendation to City Council for consideration and additional public review before they vote to adopt the amendments next year.

City of Portland Publishes U.S. EPA’s Website on Climate Change

Portland joins Chicago and 12 other U.S. cities to make the EPA's climate data available to the public

Portland, ORE. — In response to President Donald Trump ordering the removal of climate change data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s website, the City of Portland joins 12 other cities in re-publishing the deleted information.
“Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time, and the most pressing global issue we face,” said Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler. “Any vision for the future of our city needs to acknowledge climate change. It isn’t just our planet that’s at stake, it’s our very existence.”

Portland leads on local climate action

In 1993, Portland became the first city in the United States to adopt a local plan to reduce carbon pollution. Since then, local carbon emissions have declined by more than 20 percent, even while growing our population by 33 percent and adding 24 percent more jobs.
“For more than two decades, Portland has prioritized local action on climate change. And we’ve had great success in reducing local carbon emissions,” said Susan Anderson, Director, Bureau of Planning and Sustainability. “Clearly cities have been leaders in addressing climate change, and cities will continue to lead.”

Partnerships among cities are key to success

Collaboration among the world’s greatest cities has become more important than ever to advancing conversations on climate change. Through partnerships like the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, the Urban Sustainability Directors Network and the Carbon Neutral Cities Alliance, cities are sharing best practices, challenges and successes.

MAYOR EMANUEL ANNOUNCES 12 OTHER CITIES JOIN CHICAGO TO PUBLISH EPA CLIMATE CHANGE INFORMATION

Mayor Rahm Emanuel today announced that 12 other cities have joined the City of Chicago in posting research from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Climate Change Website after the Trump administration unceremoniously removed it from the federal government’s websites on April 29.

“It is inspiring to see so many mayors from across the country stand up for the environment through the preservation of this data,” Mayor Emanuel said. “Making climate change research widely available underscores that facts cannot be disputed and science cannot be erased. I will continue to work with these Mayors and all those involved in the Climate Alliance to take action at the local level, including honoring the Paris Agreement.”

After the creation of the City of Chicago “Climate Change is Real” website on May 7, Mayor Emanuel called on other Mayors to post the climate change information, ensuring the public has ready access to information the EPA developed over decades of research. The Mayors and cities posting information include:

Mayor Kasim Reed of Atlanta, Georgia
Mayor Marty Walsh of Boston, Massachusetts
Mayor Steve Hagerty of Evanston, Illinois
Mayor Lioneld Jordan of Fayetteville, Arkansas
Mayor Sylvester Turner of Houston, Texas
Mayor Tom Barrett of Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Mayor Mitch Landrieu of New Orleans, Louisiana
Mayor Jim Kenney of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Mayor Ted Wheeler of Portland, Oregon
Mayor Ed Lee of San Francisco, California
Mayor Ed Murray of Seattle, Washington
Mayor Lyda Krewson of St. Louis, Missouri

The Chicago Department of Innovation and Technology has uploaded this information to an open-sourced website so that other cities, academic institutions, and organizations can post it to their own websites at https://chicago.github.io/climatechangeisreal/. It includes information on the basic science behind climate change, the different ways in which weather is impacted from increased greenhouse gas emissions, and actions the federal government has taken to reduce the impact. These 12 cities will continue to build out and make updates to their climate change pages in the coming days and weeks.

“Cities have been stepping up to safeguard the public in creative and important ways as DC shirks its leadership on climate change,” said Rhea Suh, President, Natural Resources Defense Council. “Chicago’s effort to preserve and post important climate data is a huge victory for transparency, science and community health—front lines in the battle for climate action these days. And Mayors from across the country—Republicans and Democrats, from big cities and small towns—are stepping into the breach to ensure we reduce carbon pollution and protect our neighbors from the dangerous impacts of climate change.”

On June 7, Mayor Emanuel signed an Executive Order formalizing Chicago’s commitment to adopt the guidelines of the Paris Agreement after President Trump withdrew the United States, reneging on a consensus with 196 countries on environment protections. The Executive Order doubles down on the Paris Agreement’s goals of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and limiting global temperature rise to two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.
This builds on recent progress of Chicago’s reduction in carbon emissions by seven percent from 2010 to 2015, despite an increase in population. This benchmark is equivalent to shutting down a coal power plant for eight months.

Last week, Mayor Emanuel joined over 200 mayors from around the country to commit to the Paris Agreement as part of the Mayors National Climate Agenda, or Climate Mayors. This network of U.S. mayors — representing over 56 million Americans in red states and blue states — work together to strengthen local efforts for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and supporting efforts for binding federal and global-level policy making. Mayor Emanuel also joined over 1,000 state, local, and business leaders from across the country as part of the “We’re Still In” campaign, coming together to signal the importance of the Paris Accord both nationally and across the world.

In April, the Mayor announced that by 2025 all of Chicago’s public buildings will be powered by 100 percent renewable energy. That transition means that eight percent of the city-wide electricity load or 1.8 billion kilowatt hours will come from clean and renewable sources. This follows the 2013 commitment that the City made to eliminating coal from its electricity supply.

Earlier this year, the City of Chicago was awarded the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency 2017 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Award. The award is given annually to honor organizations that have made outstanding contributions to protecting the environment through energy efficiency and recognized the Retrofit Chicago Energy Challenge and its 76 member buildings covering 51.3 million square feet-all of which have committed to reducing their energy use by 20 percent. The award also recognized the four years of successful implementation of the City’s Energy Benchmarking Ordinance which has reduced energy use by four percent in buildings covered by the ordinance.
