The City of Maywood Park and the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office have received several calls and emails over the past few months reporting strangers going through their garbage and recycling bins on Wednesday nights or Thursday mornings.
A Maywood Park resident volunteered her time to create and print weather-proof stickers to warn that unauthorized collection from residential garbage and recycling bins is prohibited, The City of Maywood Park passed an ordinance (No. 2012-2) that makes it unlawful for any person, other than the owner or person authorized by law or the City Manager to collect refuse or recycling.
A group of volunteers will begin affixing the stickers to residents’ bins beginning this week. Distribution will begin at the north end of the city and take a handful of weeks to complete.
