Ybor Environmental Services
The Ybor Environmental Services (YES) Team was established in December 2000 by the City of Tampa to address clean-up and aesthetic maintenance in the Ybor City Historic District.
As a visitor destination and popular entertainment venue, Ybor City requires additional services in order to stay clean and attractive. The YES Team services are contracted out to a private company, and managed by the Ybor City Development Corporation.
