Salute to streets dept. workers

The Philadelphia Department of Streets should be very proud of the recycling team of Anthony and Mr. Fields, assigned to Somerton. They are always pleasant to the people and dogs on their route. Anthony always asks, “How you doing, buddy?” to my dog who barks to greet him.

They are courteous to drivers and try to keep traffic flowing. They respectfully put down the bin, not toss. They also do little things that go above and beyond their duties and deserve recognition.

This opinion is not just mine but shared by many in our Somerton Facebook group “Somerton Neighbors.”

Anthony and Mr. Fields, we salute you.
