Join for our first monthly cleanup on Saturday, March 29th 2014 from 9:30 to 12 noon.

We will meet at the Passyunk Gardens (E. Passyunk Ave and Wharton Streets) to pick up supplies and decide on a location for the cleanup; bring your own gloves. It’s been (and still is) a tough winter and our streets need a lot of attention. Come help us make our wonderful neighborhood the best it can be.

We are looking for volunteers to lead our monthly cleanups. The PSCA holds monthly cleanups on the last Saturday of each month. We meet at Passyunk Gardens at 9:30 and work for 2 hours. Our regular cleanups are a great way to meet new neighbors while helping to make our streets and sidewalks a bit cleaner at the same time. Become a cleanup volunteer and help us keep Passyunk Square beautiful! Please email trash@passyunk.org to volunteer.

Because of all of the kind donations received by the PSCA this past year, we will continue our street cleaning contract with ABM for 2014 and will be amending it to a full year! Previously our contract covered 10 months of the year. We are very excited about this news and are very grateful for the support of neighbors and sponsors who helped make this happen. Thank you for your continued support in helping make our neighborhood a better place.

Message from the Philadelphia Streets Department:

Due to the extreme low temperatures and recent weather events, Sanitation collections will be delayed throughout the week. Residents should set out their trash and recycling on their regularly scheduled day and keep them at their normal pick up locations. If they are not picked up we will collect the following day. We regret this inconvenience and thank citizens in advance for their patience and cooperation as crews navigate through dangerous cold weather.

Don’t leave your tree for curbside collection, keep its memory alive and have it recycled instead! Trees left at the curb will be treated as trash, which means they will not be recycled. On Saturday, January 4th from 10am to 4pm, you can bring your tree to Columbus Square Park (corner of 13th and Reed Streets) and have it turned into wood chips and mulch that will be used in local parks and gardens. Unfortunately, we can’t take early drop-offs so make your plans now to be there between 10am and 4pm.  A $5 donation is suggested to cover the costs of the tree chipping by Bartlett Tree Experts. Please be sure to remove all decorations (they don’t make good mulch).We’re looking for a few good volunteers to help out with this event. Email trash@passyunk.org if you’re interested in lending a hand.

Empty your closets, basements, and storage spaces of all your old and broken electronic devices and bring them over to the ACME parking lot at 10th and Reed Streets on Saturday, November 16 from 10am-2pm. We have partnered with eForce Compliance, Philadelphia’s only R2 certified e-waste recycler, to give you another opportunity to responsibly recycle obsolete electronics. All you have to do is drop off your e-waste items and eForce Compliance will do the rest!

Residents are encouraged to bring “anything with a plug.” All household electronics including computers, printers, microwaves, air-conditioners, metals and small appliances will be accepted. Please visit www.eforcecompliance.com for more information on accepted items. (NO SMOKE DETECTORS OR LARGE APPLIANCES will be accepted)

This is a super convenient way to dispose of your old and broken electronics that can no longer be left out on the curb for trash pickup. That’s right, the Covered Device Recycling Act now makes it illegal to dispose many electronic devices in state landfills. This includes desktop and laptop computers, monitors, peripherals such as printers, keyboards and mouses, tablets like iPads and Kindles, and televisions with viewable screens larger than four inches.

If you miss our event, eWaste must be taken to a city sanitation center and cannot be left at the curb. For locations visit http://www.philadelphiastreets.com/san-convenience-centers.aspx

By attending our event, not only are you clearing the clutter out of your storage spaces, you are taking part in an effort to spread awareness and help protect our environment. Please contact Carmela at trash@passyunk.org with any questions.
