Registration is now open for the SOLVE Beach and Riverside Cleanup, which will see thousands of volunteers scour the sands for trash on Saturday, Sept. 29.

The cleanup, aimed at clearing beaches and river banks of trash before the fall rains can wash it into the ocean, will run from 10 am to 1 pm at more than 100 locations across the state.

To register and view a list of project sites, go to, call Joy Hawkins at 503-844-9571 ext 317, or email
