CCRA is working with the Philadelphia Streets Department to try to resolve problematic Big Belly garbage cans in our neighborhood that frequently are overfilled to capacity. In the meantime, we ask that you do not add to the problem by putting household or other trash outside of or around an overly full Big Belly!
This is not only a quality of life issue, but it is also a public health and wellness issue.
If you see someone adding to the pile, please ask them to stop and think about it and take their garbage home or to another trash can. You can also use 311 to report issues of concern that are not a crime in progress.
If you are aware of a Big Belly trash can near you that continues to be overfilled, please reach out to CCRA at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know.
