Trash is scattered around the streets, sidewalks and vacant lots of our city. Things like the spring cleanup, new trash cleaning programs and the potential for city-wide street cleaning are helpful, but they’re still not solving this deeply-rooted trash problem.

One Point Breeze resident is now bringing awareness to this issue with a Twitter page dedicated to sharing photos of the trash in South Philly. Moderator of the page, Jen Devor, wants to show the litter throughout this part of the city, but she also hopes to, “draw attention to solutions for litter prevention and abatement.”

The page, @SouthPhilaTrash is meant to service as a “place to vent and a virtual reminder.” Devor is looking for other members of the South Philly community to begin tweeting their photos to her to document this widespread issue.
