Metro’s Regional Illegal Dumping Patrol program tackles the problem of dumped garbage on public property and provides other cleanup services around greater Portland. In response to Metro’s 2030 Regional Waste Plan, and its strategic plan to advance racial equity, RID Patrol is in the process of expanding its existing work transition program and creating career pathways for individuals with systemic barriers to employment. This program will be designed to support a transformational experience for people with systematic barriers to employment and specifically focus its services to support Black, Indigenous, and People of Color impacted by the criminal justice system.
The purpose of this meeting is to discuss impacts to Metro, the RID Patrol and the solid waste system due to COVID-19.
