Passyunk Square extending sidewalk sweeping program
Since the trash problem in the city isn’t going to resolve itself, some organizations are taking action with more regular cleanups, since a bill for a street cleaning program likely won’t be moving forward too quickly.
Passyunk Square Civic Association has had a sidewalk sweeping program for years now. The program is now working to extend east of 9th Street and north of Federal Street.
Starting this month, sidewalk sweeping will be happening every two weeks in these areas. As of now, this is just a pilot program, but it could be extended in the future.
The current schedule, for Monday, February 1 through Friday, February 12:
Although this does mean that the sidewalks will be cleaned more frequently, PSCA is still encouraging neighbors to sweep in front of their homes once a week, and even volunteer to keep an eye on the progress on your street. These sidewalk sweepers will be dealing with ordinary litter, not large trash. If there’s any large items disposed on your street, you’re still encouraged to contact 311. If you’d like to know more, or volunteer, you can contact PSCA at email@example.com.

Thank you PSCA. I will surely donate for this wonderful service. Glad to be a part of the neighborhood!
This is fantastic. A worthwhile investment!
If all home owners/renters would just sweep once a week where they live we wouldn’t have such a dirty area that we call, Home!!
The problem isn’t the homeowners or businesses (although there is definitely some of that as well). I live on 9th just south of MOrris and frequently sweep the entire block…..the bigger issue is that I see people just walking down the street constantly throwing the garbage on the sidewalk. They don’t live on the block and are just passing through. It’s a constant battle.
I don’t have time or motivation to keep the *inside* of my house swept once a week, let alone the sidewalk and the street!
