Eliot Spring Clean-Up 2016

Clean Up 2015It’s time for the annual Eliot Spring Clean-Up!

On Sunday, May 22nd from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm clean out your closets, unclutter your garage, organize your book shelves and recycle your outdated and broken electronics. Also bring us your used furniture, clothes, household items and old bicycles. This is the one Eliot Neighborhood Association fundraiser of the year so give generously.

We will have dumpsters on site as well as electronics recycling by Green Century, scrap metal recycling and an onsite swap meet for those things too good to throw away. Items remaining will be taken to Community Warehouse, Goodwill and Title Wave Book Store. You just might find that one item that really puts the room together or completes your outfit.

Here are the details so you can join in the effort to clean up Eliot and your house too!
