Clean-up North Portland

Clean-up, Graffiti Removal, & Beautification


Annual Spring Neighborhood Clean-ups

Each spring, volunteers work together to clean up their neighborhood. Sponsoring community groups receive a small amount of money from the City of Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability in order to pay for dumpsters, equipment, and food for volunteers. Metro makes a significant contribution to pay for disposal fees at the transfer station. To find out how you can participate, contact Associate Program Director, Doretta Schrock.

Livability Teams

Several Livability Teams have formed in the NPNS district. With financial and staff support from NPNS and the Office of Neighborhood Involvement, neighbors gather on a regular basis to clean up trash and remove graffiti. After each clean-up, neighbors gather for food and conversation. To find out how you can participate in your neighborhood, contact Associate Program Director, Doretta Schrock.

Graffiti Removal

The Office of Neighborhood Involvement offers resources for reporting and removing graffiti. Learn more about the ONI Graffiti Removal Program.
