Community Clean Up Day, Saturday, June 20
Community Clean-Up Day returns Saturday, June 20, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (or until dumpsters are filled to capacity)!
Clean out your garage and closets and bring your unwanted items to the Reuse, Recycle and Dispose event at the West End Building parking lot. This event is brought to you by the joint efforts and partnership with Republic Services, Metro, Community Warehouse, Community Cycling Center, Tools for Troops and the Sustainability Advisory Board.
We will also rope off an area for people to get first dibs on items the Community Warehouse cannot take, as we hope many of our donations can be taken to new homes. Please note that while anyone is welcome to collect items from this area, drop offs are limited to Lake Oswego residents only and our participating community organizations will collect what they need first.
Look for details in the June issue of HelloLO to learn more about this event, or please call Jenny at 503-635-0291.
