This is the official kickoff to Philadelphia's cleaning season, and residents are encouraged to come out and help rid Philadelphia of litter. In 2013, more than 13,000 volunteers helped collect 1,014,540 pounds of trash and 23,341 pounds of recycling across the city, making it the biggest event to date!
Now is a great time for you to get involved and do your part to help make Philadelphia's street cleaner and safer. Cleanup stations are located throughout the City, and volunteers are needed and each and every one if them. And remember, this is just the beginning of our cleaning season…let's keep up the sweep up all year long!
