A LETTER TO THE EDITOR OF PHILADELPHIA MAGAZINE [In The News]
Dear Mr. McGrath: I was disappointed with your June article concerning trash and litter in Philadelphia. The Streets Department provides unprecedented access to its senior manager, operations, and data to fully inform the writer about our work and the challenges that we face. You chose, however, to edit the story to narrowly focus on the tired and inaccurate stereotype of careless sanitation workers being the cause of litter on streets, sidewalks and in parks. In addition, most of the suggestions that your sidebar promotes were vetted and rejected in Philadelphia years ago due to expense, inefficiency and/or impracticability.
