Trash & Recycling24 Mar 2015 05:05 pm

The Streets Department has announced potential one-day delays for trash pickup in some areas, due to wear and tear on a significant number of the sanitation trucks that are also used for snow removal. Residents should continue to set out trash on the normal schedule, and any trash not collected on the usual day will be picked up the following day. Read the full press release on the Streets Department’s website.

While we do not know if our neighborhood will experience any collection delays at all, as a reminder, all household trash must be placed in sealed bags or appropriate containers. This is not only a requirement, it also helps to keep loose trash from scattering around on these breezy spring days! Thanks for helping to keep Passyunk Square a clean and pleasant place to live, work, and visit.
