Coos Bay/North Bend Annual City Clean Up Day

The eleventh annual City Clean Up Day is scheduled for Saturday, April 21 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Residents of Coos Bay and North Bend can donate at least four (4) items of food or $4 for the South Coast Food Share and then drop off up to four (4) cans (35-gallon size) of household garbage. Recyclables are welcome, but no tires, appliances, furniture, metal, or hazardous materials will be accepted. Garbage drop-off is limited to residents of Coos Bay and North Bend.

This year cash donations will be accepted in addition to canned food. South Coast Food Share can buy seven pounds of food for every dollar donated, so giving cash makes donations even more effective.

For food donations, the most-needed foods are protein, especially non-meat protein, and ready-to-eat canned meals such as soup, stew and chili. Popular items include canned tuna or chicken, peanut butter, canned foods with pop-top lids, canned fruit in its own juice or water, low-sodium canned vegetables, olive or canola oil, spices, low-sugar whole grain cereals, healthy snacks such as granola bars, nuts, and dried fruit.

Please call the City of Coos Bay at 541-269-8918 with questions or to volunteer. Last year the event took in over 13 tons of garbage and collected over 1,000 pounds of food for local food banks.

United Way Day of Caring will be helping community members, such as elderly or disabled persons, by picking up garbage at their homes and bringing it to a drop-off site. South Coast Food Share, North Bend Presbyterian Church, and the Salvation Army will be helping to collect donations and direct traffic at the drop-off sites. Les’ Sanitary Service, Coos Bay Sanitary Service and North Bend Sanitation will be accepting the garbage and providing the collection equipment.
