The 2010 Concordia Neighborhood Cleanup is happening on Saturday, May 1. We can all feel proud that Concordia consistently fills more drop boxes than any other NE neighborhood during our cleanup event. We can also take more pride in the fact that we recycle thousands of pounds of metal, electronics, reusable household goods/ furniture, and bikes during our event. This years event is another chance to come together as a team and make a difference with your neighbors. If you are not capable of transporting that which you wish to dispose of, we would like to help.
Those in need of assistance may contact Ryan Saari at 503-737-9339 (between 9:00 and 5:00 weekdays) to schedule assistance from Oregon Community volunteers.
Please remember that this is a fund raising event for your CNA so that we may continue to positively enhance our community. We are asking for donations of $5/car, $10/truck, $15/large truck, and $20/ oversized load.
E-Waste: we are not sending any electronics to landfill. ReTronics, a local e-wast recycler will be there to take what you have for a small fee.
- Computer monitors = $10
- TVs (any size) = $20
- Everything else (computers, printers, VCRs) = $5.00 per armload.

Why is it important to recycle e-waste?
Electric equipment is made with a variety of elements, like plastics, glass, steel, gold, lead, mercury, cadmium, and fire retardants that can be recaptured through recycling and used again. If thrown away, electronic equipment can release toxins to the environment, potentially polluting the groundwater we drink and the air that we breathe. Recycling the resources in electronic equipment eliminates the need to obtain these elements from nature, decreasing production impact on the environment.
Items we cannot take:
- Hazardous waste
Please see Metro for hazardous waste recycling guidelines and locations.
We do need additional volunteers to help during two shippers either 7:30 – 10 A.M. or 10A.M. to 1 P.M. Please call Ken Forcier at 503-522-7660 to sign up to help.
