Philadelphia's street cleaning program returns in April
Philly's street sweeping program will move to 14 new areas, starting April 4.
- The program will target sections of Frankford, Point Breeze, Kensington, Strawberry Mansion, Port Richmond and Nicetown, among others.
Flashback: The Kenney administration began the pilot program in 2019 in six neighborhoods.
- The pandemic derailed the program in 2020, but the city revived it last year with new investments.
How it works: Street cleaning will take place between 9am-3pm Monday through Thursday.
- Crews will use gas-powered leaf blowers to remove debris, along with mechanical brooms.
Be smart: No parking requirements will be enforced on street cleaning days in six of the 14 areas initially, including North Central, South and West.
- The city will install signs warning drivers to move their vehicles in the remaining eight areas during the course of the year.
