Block Captain Rally

Each year, The Philadelphia Streets Department kicks off another season of keeping our neighborhoods clean with the annual Block Captain Rally. This year's event is a great opportunity to acknowledge our Block Captains for the hard work they do all year long. As always, their commitment and dedication are recognized by the Mayor, City Council, and the Streets Commissioner. More than just a celebration, the Rally also features workshops that keep Block Captains up to date about the City's plans for a cleaner Philadelphia.

This year's Cleanup, entitled "Pick It Up, Philly," will be part of a long term integrated effort not to just clean up litter but to prevent litter from coming back to plague our streets, parks, and recreation centers. The Philly Spring Cleanup is a great start, but we need to maintain our efforts all year long!
