As of September 1st, 2006, the City of Portland switched to the new e-card system. Gone are the days of the colored punch passes. The new e-cards allow for quick and easy use of the Riverside Recycling Facility, while at the same time preventing fraudulent use of services.
Only property owners who receive trash and recycling services from the City are currently eligible for the City's E-Card program.
When you pick up your e-card you need TWO documents. A picture ID (such as a driverís license) and proof that you own your home (either a tax bill or a mortgage statement).
E-cards are located at 55 Portland Street, Department of Public Services building,. Please do not go to Riverside Recycling Facility to acquire an E-card.
