Metro, a metropolitan service district organized under the laws of the State of Oregon and the Metro Chater, located at 600 NE Grand Avenue, Portland OR 97232-2736, is hereby inviting proposals for Regional Illegal Dumping (RID) Patrol Work Transition Program. 

Since 1993, Metro has worked with other local government and law enforcement agencies to cleanup and investigate illegal dumps across the Metro region. Trash, old appliances, torn mattresses, used tires, broken furniture, oil, antifreeze and pesticides are a few of the things illegal dumpers leave on public lands, sidewalks, alleyways and waterways, putting human health and wildlife at risk. RID Patrol cleans up waste illegally dumped on public property. RID Patrol, through partnerships with local law enforcement agencies, also investigates evidence found in illegal dumps and eye-witness accounts of dumping incidents on either public or private property. RID Patrol consists of three crews, two from Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, on contract to Metro, and one Metro crew.

Contractor(s) will provide between one to four work crews consisting of two to three crew members and a truck and trailer to support Metro’s RID Patrol’s regional cleanup program. RID Patrol cleans up dumped and abandoned garbage on public land across the greater Portland area, conducts camp cleanups on Metro property and from time-to-time will assist local government partners with cleanup efforts related to camps on other public land. RID Patrol is a workforce transition program that resides in the Community Services and Education (CSE) division of the Waste Prevention and Environmental Services (WPES) Department. Please reference the RFP 3940 for more information.
