Your feedback requested: New public trash cans in North Portland

Good Morning North Portland Neighborhood Associations!

My name is Quintin Bauer and I work with the City of Portland as the Public Trash Collection Program Manager.  

Late this spring, we will be adding 100 new public trash cans throughout North Portland. The cans will be emptied twice a week, paid for by the City. I’m reaching out because I’d like to hear from you: Where would you like new public trash cans? 

You can fill out this brief survey, about where we should put the new cans. You’re also welcome to call or email me or schedule a time for us to walk the neighborhood (with appropriate COVID precautions). 

And please share the survey with other North Portland community members and businesses: www.bit.ly/north-portland-trash-cans. I can provide template text and images to include in a newsletter or email, and please let me know if you need information translated into another language. 

You can find more details about the new public trash cans on our website (www.portland.gov/north-public-trash-cans), including what the trash cans look like and a map showing the neighborhoods where cans will be added this spring. 

Please provide feedback by March 15, 2022. 

I look forward to hearing from you, and thanks so much for all you do for Portland!
