Beautification and Newsletter04 Aug 2015 01:00 pm
PSCA continues its partnership with the Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) to ensure that stormwater management installations in our neighborhood – the planters and rain garden at Columbus Square Park, the planter outside the South Philadelphia Older Adult Center, the tree trench on 12th Street between Dickinson and Tasker, and the tree trench on 10th street between Wilder and Reed – are as beautiful as they are effective in keeping our water clean.
We have a great team working on this but can always use more help! Volunteers to help us monitor these sites and receive training about how the sites function and how the neighborhood can report problems and give feedback to PWD.  Email beautification@passyunk.org for more information about joining our team. You can also read more about PWD’s innovative Green Cities, Clean Waters initiative at their website.

Sidewalk Sweeping – Revamped!

Our area has always been a popular tourist destination. With the arrival of the special guest in September we can expect even more visitors to the city. That is just one reason the sidewalk sweeping program needed a bit of tweaking. Thanks to your support of PSCA we will have someone 5 days a week, four hours each morning. Mostly this will take place in the east side of our neighborhood and a few streets to the north.

We are working on getting a set schedule. Once we do we will need you to be our eyes reporting on the progress. Look for updates on social media!

In the meantime, look for the young man with the PSCA vest on in our area!

Newsletter and Trash & Recycling and Volunteers04 Aug 2015 12:30 pm
We have two events coming up for Trash & Recycling enthusiasts:
Trash and Recycling Committee meeting: 6:30 pm, Thursday, August 20 August 27 at the Pop-up Garden (9th and Wharton). The agenda will include the push to get local retail businesses to help out by putting trash cans outside during business hours, and planning for an October 10 recycling event (paper shredding, e-waste, and hopefully hazardous waste collection – more to come on this!).
Monthly Cleanup: Saturday, August 29 at Gold Star Park and 6th & 7th streets. Watch for details on Twitter and Facebook.
