Tweed Road Clean-up Party!

  • 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
  • Tweed Rd and Couch Market Rd



Adoption Party!

We adopted Tweed Road last year from Deschutes County. Saturday afternoon, 5/15,  we'll clean its pretty face. 1.9 miles of beautiful road, and last time I checked, not much trash.

We'll bring your safety vest, trash bags, and the waiver form for you to sign. You should bring work boots, gloves, water bottle, and mask.  Please use Covid social distancing rules. 

Park your car off the road around the Tweed/Couch Intersection.

There might be yummy treats at the end!

Hope to see you there for our first in-person non-riding event in a year!

From the Deschutes County Adopt a Road webpage:

  1. Participants must wear approved orange vest at all times while working on the roadsides or within the right-of-way.
  2. Participants are urged to wear leather work gloves over latex gloves.
  3. Participants will walk on the shoulder of the road, not on the road itself, while picking up trash or walking to and from vehicles.
  4. Participants are encouraged to recycle any recyclable items.
  5. Place large items, such as appliances, couches, etc., on the shoulder of the road, far enough off the pavement to prevent their being struck by traffic.
  6. You may come across hazardous materials in your work, such as hypodermic needles, broken glass, etc. If you find any hazardous materials or anything that you cannot identify, FLAG IT, WALK AWAY FROM IT AND CALL THE GROUP LEADER. Never attempt to pick up any of these items. If you have already touched the item, before realizing what it was, wash your skin with water immediately. If available, use soap, after rinsing off your skin with water. Notify the Road Department contact person of the flagged hazardous item when calling to request a litter bag pickup.

Central Oregon Wheelers is a 501(c)7 non-profit organization.
