Last night’s General Meeting of the Roseway Neighborhood Association included a visit from Chase Ballew, a graduate student from the Master of Urban and Regional Planning of Portland State University. His presentation about curbside recycling was followed with a lively question and answer time regarding Portland’s program.
Here’s a link to some of the material he presented.
Chase reminded those who have been around awhile of how complicated recycling used to be here in Roseway. Join Max Roseway for some humorous reflections on neighborhood rubbish disposal. Ah, those were the days.
