In 2013, Americans generated almost 700,000 tons every day. Some of that trash ended up on America’s streets, highways, parks, and coastlines. The Can It Portland program is a community effort to keep trash and debris in its place—in garbage bins and trash containers. The program is open to everyone.
On the first Saturday of each month, participants meet at 8:00 a.m. at the Joe Burke Pavilion (behind the Portland Community Center). There they will register and receive their Can It Portland clean-up location. Participants return to the pavilion by 11:00 a.m. for program wrap-up.
All participants must sign a program release waiver. Minors must have a parent/guardian sign a release.
Can It Portland is open to individuals, families, civic, and church groups. For more information, contact Parks & Recreation at 361.777.4670.
