Annual Roseway Cleanup is coming!

The annual Roseway Cleanup will take place rom 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 24, at Glenhaven Park, NE Siskiyou Street and 82nd Avenue. This community event is a great opportunity to clean out your garage and support your neighborhood at the same time. We will accept METAL, YARD DEBRIS, WOOD WASTE, ELECTRONICS, BULKY WASTE and TIRES.

Suggested donations are $10 per carload, $15 per truckload, $20 per large truckload, $3 per tire and $5 per tire with rim.

Please note: We will NOT accept paint, chemicals, batteries or other hazardous waste.

The crowd-pleasing YOU PRICE IT area will also be back this year. Donate your reusable household goods to the community and give them a new home. Then, enjoy shopping for bargains!

To make this event a success, we need more than 75 VOLUNTEERS. Come join the fun! The volunteer shifts are 3 hours long and scheduled from 8 to 11 a.m., 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 1 to 4 p.m. Shift leaders and volunteers are needed for: Yard Debris/Wood Waste; Metal; Bulky Waste; Greeters/Cashiers, Traffic Control, Plastics, You Price It, and Rebuilding Center. As an added bonus, all volunteers get to bring a load to the cleanup for free, get first pick at the You Price It tent, and receive complimentary refreshments. Several volunteer spots are still needed and we look forward to seeing you!

To volunteer, please email rosewayvolunteer@gmail.com and let us know your top three preferences, in order, for the area and shift for which you would like to volunteer and whether you are willing to be a shift leader.

SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR EVENT SPONSORS AND PARTNERS:

Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, Metro, Central Northeast Neighbors Inc., Portland Parks, Recology, The ReBuilding Center and Brickhouse Pizza.

  1. Some of the signs you’ve put up to advertise the cleanup and STILL up. Despite city code which prohibits posting these signs on public property, you put them up anyway and then leave them up long after the event. You are subsidized with our tax dollars and you show little regard for public rules and process.
    Check the intersection of NE Sandy & NE Fremont.

  2. That is a very good tip especially to those new
    to the blogosphere. Short but very precise information…
    Appreciate your sharing this one. A must read article!
