Due to the extreme weather the city has experienced over the past two winters, an unusually high number of our trash trucks are in the shop for major repairs. As a result, trash pickup has been impacted citywide with scattered one day collection delays. This will continue for the next several weeks. We ask residents to continue placing their trash out on the regular day at the normal location. Materials not collected on the scheduled day will be picked up the following day.
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank residents for their cooperation. Streets Department crews are diligently working to ensure that trash is collected.
ALERT : Mar 19, 2015 - LOCUST AND RACE STREETS CLOSED FOR RAIL CROSSINGS FOR REPAIRS
A malfunction of the electric gates at both the Race Street and Locust Street crossings to the Schuylkill River Trail has caused an unsafe condition for users of the crossings. The gates will be closed until repairs can be made. To access the bike trail, citizens are urged to use the access ramp at Market Street, the access point on Martin Luther King Drive across from the Art Museum, access stairs at Walnut St, or the pedestrian bridge in Schuylkill River Park just south of Locust St.
The Streets Department thanks citizens in advance for their patience and cooperation during the repairs.
