The wire basket trash cans in Philadelphia are there to cut DOWN on litter, not add to it. Unfortunately, some residents have been dumping their household and business garbage in there, forcing trash to overflow, causing a whole bigger litter issue in our neighborhoods.

$150 FINE.

Dumping household or business trash into wire trash baskets isn’t just unsightly, it is illegal – carrying a $150 fine. SWEEP Officers are spreading the word, and trying to put an end to this problem.
