So Long Winter: Spring Cleanup Day on Saturday

April 3, 2014

This Saturday is the official Spring Cleanup Day in Philadelphia, when hundreds of volunteers will lend their hand in cleaning and beautifying streets, parks and lots all around the city. A lot of trash, leaves and dirt built up everywhere over the long winter, so this is a good chance to remove them in a good company of your friends and neighbors.

We have reported about the Spring cleanup being organized by Cedar Park Neighbors on Saturday. Here are some other opportunities.

University City Community Cleanup:

University City District will be organizing a few focused efforts throughout the neighborhood and will be happy to assist anyone interested in participating by providing trash bags, brooms, work gloves, and trash pickup. To sign up please contact UCD at or 215-243-0555.

Other cleanup projects:

Philadelphia Streets Department’s website has a map of registered cleanup projects throughout the city. You can select a project near your home and sign up to volunteer.



Join Rebuilding Together Philadelphia

Hundreds of volunteers from Rebuilding Together Philadelphia will be out this Saturday in Mantua repairing homes for low-income residents, including two veterans of the US Armed Forces. The house rehabilitation project, which began last weekend, also includes enhancing home facades, beautifying streets, and improvement of stormwater management.
