Graffiti / Garbage Cleanup
Help keep Arbor Lodge clean
In addition to the monthly "Delitter Arbor Lodge" events where neighbors partner with SOVLE to help clean up litter in the neighborhood, there are other resources available to help.
For trash removal related to camps, file a campsite report. This will automatically create a work assignment for Central City Concern's Clean Start crew to come by and assist with garbage removal. This crew has lived experience, and they will not remove anything identified as personal property.
Choose one of these options to report garbage because of a nearby encampment:
PDX Reporter: Go to: https://pdxreporter.org and select "Campsite Reporting" from the main menu.
Calling Information & Referral: 503-823-4000
