Our Awesome Annual Sabin Neighborhood Event: The 2010 Sabin Spring Clean-Up!

On Saturday, May 15, from 10 am -to 2 pm the Sabin Clean-up Committee cordially invites the Sabin community to load-up unwanted debris and bring it to the annual Spring Clean-Up for disposal. The drop location is the same as most years; the Maranatha Church Parking Lot, NE 12th & Skidmore. We are readily accepting yard debris, household junk, furniture, mattresses, scrap metal, appliances, microwaves & tires. However, there will be a disposal fee for TVs and computer monitors that have "CRT picture tubes." The fees are $10 for each computer monitor, $10 for each TV and $20 for each large console television. There is no charge for e-waste such as stereos, tape players, printers or CPUs.

The Sabin Clean-up will not accept kitchen garbage, construction debris, commercial by-products, batteries, paint, hazardous or chemical wastes. Additionally, the clean-up crew will not accept materials that are classified as compostable material or curbside recyclables; recyclable glass, newspapers, motor oil or cardboard should be put out for pick-up with your regular household garbage for pick-up by your normal rubbish pick-up service. See the Metro website for details at www.metro-region.org.

The Sabin Clean-up Committee offers a limited curbside pick-up service to individuals, seniors and folks that are "in-need." These folks typically have disabilities that limit their ability to efficiently dispose of debris. Please do not use this service unless you are severely limited by physical ability and have no means what-so-ever to dispose of debris. Please donate generously when using this service; Fred and Rick are the Sabin Clean-up A-Team; their commitment to this service is absolutely amazing. Contact Jerry Channell at 503-282-7584 to schedule a pick-up time and place for May 15th only.

To dispose of debris, just clip, fill out and bring the sanctioned coupon that is at the bottom of this newsletter or located at numerous neighborhood businesses and institutions. Please donate generously, this is a neighborhood fund-raising effort; we don’t charge flat fees like most neighborhoods. The Sabin Clean-up Committee is readily soliciting volunteers to expedite this endeavor; call Jerry at the aforementioned phone number to pitch-in and celebrate "community" by contributing to the clean-up effort. Sorry contiguous neighbors, the Sabin Spring Clean-up is available to Sabin residents only.
