Kerns/Buckman Neighborhood Cleanup: This Weekend!


The time is almost upon us! This Saturday marks the annual Kerns/Buckman Neighborhood Cleanup event, a surer sign of spring than some mangy old groundhog (no offense to groundhogs).

When: Saturday, April 16th from 9AM-12PM
Where: 2625 E Burnside Street (entrance on 26th Ave)
Accepted materials: Bulky waste, yard debris, metal, styrofoam (no peanuts), batteries (no lithium or car batteries), tires and e-waste (including computers, cell phones, LCD monitors, printers and others).
Not accepted: Hazardous waste, paint, concrete, or dirt. Contact Metro for hazardous waste disposal. Paint cans without lids and dried paint are acceptable.
Donation: $5-30 depending on load.

If you have questions, please call email or call 503.704.4095 prior to the clean-up.

This year, we’ve added an additional twist to the event. We’re coordinating a Graffiti Collaboration Clean-up effort that will identify and remove graffiti with the help of contracted removal crews. Volunteers are also needed on-site to help with the clean up efforts. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact
