After a couple years off… neighborhood cleanup is back! Start gathering your junk! North Tabor and Mt. 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 is also our major fundraiser. Please tell your neighbors and friends! Anyone can bring stuff to the cleanup.
