Take your forecasts. On Monday, April 4, the Philadelphia Streets Department launches the second phase of the city’s mechanical street cleaning program.

Using the City’s Litter Index, Streets Department chose the 14 neighborhoods with the highest concentration of litter to take part in the second phase of the Mechanical Street Cleaning pilot. These neighborhoods need more City services to keep them clean, city said.
