Trash & Recycling03 Sep 2012 06:34 pm

The South Philly Trash Think Tank was formed in spring of 2012 as a group of residents committed to addressing the problem of litter in new and creative ways. For the first project, members reached out to businesses offering takeout & items consumed off-premises to advise of a City regulation requiring them to provide a trash can outside of their store.  The City will be stepping up enforcement of this regulation soon for those that do not comply.

We finished our outreach in August; visiting 42 businesses of which 16 were already in compliance.  Having almost 40% is a good starting number and are hoping all the remaining business we met with will add a trash can soon.

We would like to thank all businesses that were already doing a great job in keeping their area clean:
