It’s time again for the annual Sumner Neighborhood Cleanup here in NE Portland. This year we are set for Saturday, May 19, 2011 from 9 AM to 3 PM at Helensview School, 8678 NE Sumner St (off NE 87th).

Here are full details about the Sumner neighborhood cleanup (downloadable PDF):

What is OK to Bring?

Yard debris including small branches, furniture, carpet, scrap metal, washers/dryers, toilets, mattresses, mowers (gas and oil removed), woodstoves, bikes, tubs, toys, stereos, VCRs.

We recycle your old cell phones and your used ink cartridges. Scott’s Recycling will take your appliances and scrap metal!


Hazardous Waste: Gasoline, chemicals, oil, paint, tar, batteries, animal waste or liquids of any kind.

Do not bring these building and landscape materials: concrete, asphalt, dirt, sod, brick, cement, sand, gravel or roofing, asbestos material and under the sink garbage!

We will refuse you and may have to refuse your whole load for cross contamination. So please just don’t bring these items.
