Portland, ORE. — Due to Portland's poor air quality from forest fires and extreme heat conditions, garbage, recycling and compost companies will extend early start times for their daily collection routes for one more week, through Friday, Aug. 11, 2017. Allowing truck drivers to start garbage collection in the cooler morning hours reduces exposure to potential health risks.
The City asks that residential customers set out their garbage, recycling and composting roll carts the night before their collection day, as trucks may be out earlier than the usual 6 a.m. start time.
Residential customers should contact their garbage and recycling company or the City of Portland's Curbside Hotline, 503-823-7202, with any questions or concerns.
