Addressing the trash in our District

As the district has grown, so has the amount of litter on the streets.  The DCBA is working hard to address the issue.

 

All are invited to our first Trash Task Force Meeting:

September 24th 8AM

Living Room Realty Offices

2625 SE 26th Ave., Portland, OR 97202
We will be working on coming up with long term solutions to the issue.

In the mean time, thanks to some generous students at PSU and SE Uplift, we will be hosting a district-wide trash clean up Saturday, October 24th.

Special thanks to St. Honore, Artifact Creative Recycle, Winding Willow Acupuncture & Wellness, Mirador and New Seasons for all providing goodies to the volunteer trash collectors for their efforts!
