Arbor Lodge Shelter Updates

I bet you've noticed some changes at the Arbor Lodge Shelter. The privacy sheeting has gone up along the fencing, and the gate near the old Rite Aid front door is the way to access the Shelter with any donations now. Just ring the doorbell and someone will come to assist you. Privacy is a big thing for those who have been on the streets, the privacy sheeting helps them feel protected and not "on display" for curious folks walking or driving by.   Sadly, the opening of the Arbor Lodge Shelter has increased both foot traffic of houseless folks in/around the AL Shelter, and a few campers too. Why camp near the AL Shelter? The waitlist is now 300+ to get into the Shelter. If you don't have a cell phone to answer, some feel being closer increases her/his/their chances of getting into the shelter program.  ***** Trash pick up near the Shelter.  April 6th, 12-2pm: We are inviting anyone to join us in a short trash pick up to cover the areas of Lombard, Campbell, Denver, and other streets within a 3-5 block area around the Shelter. We will pair you up (if you are willing) with a volunteer from the AL Shelter residents and/or staff. We will provide garbage bags, trash picker uppers, and safety vests, maybe gloves. You need to come with closed toed shoes, gloves, your own water bottle, and a smile. Just show up on Denver near the back gate to the AL Shelter at 12pm on April 6th to volunteer. Thank you!

Give feedback: New public trash cans in North Portland

In Spring 2022, the City will be adding new public trash cans throughout North Portland. These 100 new cans will increase the total number of City-provided and serviced trash cans in North Portland to 215. Live or work in North Portland? We want to hear from you! We are actively seeking feedback from people who live or work in North Portland on where the new cans should (or shouldn’t) be located. Please fill out this short survey or send comments to Quintin Bauer by March 15, 2022. If you would like to receive email updates on when and where the cans will be installed, contact Quintin Bauer. Give feedback on where to add new cans Area where new trash cans will be added:

The new cans will be added in the area from the Willamette River on the West, city limits on the North, Burnside Street on the South, and Williams Avenue on the East, as well as in the Lloyd District from the Willamette River on the West, Broadway on the North, Burnside on the South, and NE 15th Avenue on the East. Cans can be placed on public sidewalks, including near businesses, schools, and intersections. (The cans cannot be placed in parking lots or other private property.)  About the trash cans:

The 65-gallon trash cans are 4.5-feet tall and take up a 3x3-foot space on the ground. In some cases, such as narrow sidewalks, a smaller 35-gallon can may be used. The cans have a side attachment for deposit beverage bottles, which can be easily collected by community members. The art on the outside of the cans will be designed by local artists, chosen in partnership with local arts groups. The trash cans will be emptied twice a week by a women or minority-owned trash hauler (currently being selected).
