City Wide Cleanup

City-wide cleanup is an opportunity for Forest Grove residents, with a current Waste Management account, to put out up to 6 extra bags (32-gallon capacity) of garbage on their regular collection day at no extra charge. Food waste is not accepted.

City-wide cleanup takes place twice a year in the spring and fall and includes a bulky waste dropoff at the B-Street Transfer Station. During the spring cleanup, the City offers a free Shred Event for personal documents.

Household Hazardous Waste

The City doesn't offer household hazardous waste recycling. Metro hosts hazardous waste recycling events in communities across greater Portland. For Metro's next event, visit their website.
