The Keep It Pretty, Rose City program seeks to empower Portlanders to make their public spaces safer and more welcoming.
SOLVE and the City of Portland are working together to clean up Portland's parks, neighborhoods, business districts and everything in between. Now is your chance to get involved in this city-wide effort to remove litter from our community at one of the upcoming cleanup events.
Join an existing cleanup or become a SOLVE leader and create your own in a neighborhood of your choosing. All event supplies are provided including bags, gloves, litter grabbers, and safety vests. Just come dressed for the weather and bring a filled, reusable water bottle.
Portland residents can also get involved with Community Collection Events. They offer neighborhood, community and nonprofit organizations funds for proper disposal of bulky household waste that may otherwise be disposed of inappropriately. The events prioritize recycling and reuse over disposal. Through Community Collection Events, the Keep It Pretty Rose City Toolkit helps you easily navigate planning a litter pickup activity. Key components include templates, checklists, scripts and resources you need to be successful at leading a small to medium-sized event from start to finish.
