Pilot Program to Assist Community Cleanup Efforts

The city will receive nearly $300,000 from the Metro Regional Refresh Fund to implement a nine-month pilot program to bolster community clean-up efforts related to litter, debris, and illegal dumping. The grant will support community-based cleanup requests, including those from local businesses, with a focus on areas that have seen increases in garbage. The money is part of the $10 million allocated for trash and sanitation services through House Bill 5202, which was approved by the 2022 Oregon Legislature and signed into law by Governor Kate Brown. 

The grant will support community-based cleanup requests, including those from local businesses, with a focus on areas that have seen increases in garbage. Cleanup efforts will focus on high-density areas like downtown with attention on city parks and open spaces, major streets and paths, and TriMet stations. 

The city will use existing reporting platforms to dispatch the crew. Please visit www.BeavertonOregon.gov/ReportAProblem to report an issue or call the Public Works office at 503-526-2220.
