Start gathering your junk! Our annual neighborhood clean-up is fast approaching.
The Mt. Tabor and North Tabor Neighborhood Associations are working together again this year to host our joint cleanup event. In addition to being a very convenient way to get rid of your junk, this event also is a major fundraiser for the two neighborhood associations. Please spread the word to your neighbors and friends! Anyone can bring stuff to the cleanup.
We’ll take bulky waste and some yard debris; we’ll recycle lots of materials, and have a reuse area for treasures that someone might want to rescue from the land fill.
For more information about the cleanup or to volunteer, please contact John Savoie, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteer! Bring a friend – it’s fun! Shifts: 8 to 11 a.m. and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Help direct traffic and unload cars and trucks, and sort recyclables. We also need people with pickup trucks to drive recyclable materials collected to Far West Fibers (now “Far West Recycling”).
Bring your tools and help in our “deconstruction area”—this allows us to recycle more—especially valuable metal!
Host a yard sign—help advertise the cleanup: contact John Savoie (email@example.com) with your address in the North Tabor neighborhood, and we will get one to you!
See the article in our Spring issue of the North Tabor Note!
