Garbage and Recycling Days
When is garbage day? What can I recycle? and more! Search by address here to find your collection day: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/54938
Garbage is collected every other week for most customers and every four weeks for some customers.
Building and Renovation Information
Many of the old homes in Alameda have lead-based paint and safe removal is important. Children are especially susceptible to lead poisoning, which can have lasting effects on health and development. The City of Portland Lead Hazard Control Program provides resources including grants and information for safe removal. https://www.portlandoregon.gov/phb/61012
