The City’s free, fish-friendly car wash kit is available for
your next fundraiser.
At home, washing the car in the driveway sends dirty soap
and pollutants directly to stormdrains and on to local waterways. We recommend
washing the car over a lawn or at a commercial car wash.
Read more about the car wash kit and tips.
The City offers downspout disconnection assistance during
the summer. Disconnecting your downspouts can prevent rainwater run-off
from entering our local streams.

We encourage homeowners and businesses to keep a
pesticide-free lawn and garden. It’s easy and helps keep harmful products away from people,
pets and our streams.
Find safer chemicals
Pet waste carries pathogens such as Giardia, E. Coli, Salmonella and Campylobacter. These bugs cause illness in people, especially children and the elderly.
Gresham's local streams are known to carry harmful levels of bacteria.
You can help by always picking up after your pet when on walks and avoiding children's play areas.
Local scouts or civic groups have volunteered to build and install dog boxes in Gresham. Look for a bag in our dog boxes when you need one and help out by bringing extra bags to leave for others.
Take the pet waste pledge.
Manage your recreational vehicle (RV) waste by using an
approved waste disposal site.
