Survey Results: New public trash cans coming to Sunnyside and SE Portland

In Fall 2021, the City will be adding 182 new public trash cans throughout Southeast Portland. The city has been actively seeking feedback from people who live or work in Southeast Portland on where the new cans should (or shouldn’t) be located.

The Sunnyside Neighborhood Association conducted its own survey from May to July 2021. We collected feedback from 63 residents covering 31 intersections. The intersection with the most votes is SE Belmont St and SE 34th Ave with 10 votes. Second is SE Taylor St and SE Chavez Blvd with 5 votes. Detailed survey results are available on sunnysideportland.org under the Feedback section in the sidebar.

Adopt One Block in the Sunnyside Neighborhood

[See a more recent version of this map at https://sunnysideportland.org/adoptoneblock/]

As of July 22nd, over 80% of the blocks in Sunnyside have been adopted through Adopt One Block. We have 132 blocks adopted and only 28 blocks still seeking adoption. This is more than three times as many blocks adopted than when we started our neighborhood outreach in early April. We had 43 adopted blocks then. The areas marked in grey on the map have been adopted; areas in black still need adoption.

More information about Adopt One Block (including an updated map as well as information about how to adopt a block) is available at sunnysideportland.org under the Volunteer menu.

If you have adopted a block, please let our Cleanup Coordinator know so we can improve collaboration and coordination among block ambassadors as well as offer local support. So far, block ambassadors covering about 50 blocks have made themselves known. Those blocks are identified with a thin white line on the map. Your contact information will not be shared publicly, but knowing about you will allow our Cleanup Coordinator to privately connect adopters of neighboring blocks if they both choose.

To make yourself known to the SNA as a block ambassador, or if you ever need help with disposing of excess trash, dealing with larger items that have been dumped, needles or biohazard cleanup, please contact Vincent Dawans, SNA Cleanup Coordinator at dawansv@gmail.com.
