Grant Park Neighborhood Clean Up

  • Grant Park Church parking lot 2728 Northeast 34th Avenue Portland, OR, 97212 United States (map)

Grant Park welcomes any help from Master Recyclers, but specifically looking for:

  • briefing volunteers on what to look for as unacceptable waste (if so, they should come prior to 9:00 am)
  • staffing a dumpster to inspect loads as they come in and explain why, if something needs to be turned away
  • bringing educational materials as handouts For incoming cars
  • assessing incoming loads and educating drivers about their options
  • any help would be wonderful and greatly appreciated, for any period of time.

In the past, Master Recyclers have: managed the swap area and talked to people about what is/isn’t appropriate for reuse and why; educated incoming drivers; helped people sort and often redirect what they have brought in; talked to the volunteers about how stuff should be sorted and why; been general ambassadors of waste information.

Also, if a Master Recycler has an idea for something that would enhance our event we’d love to hear it!
