PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia is starting a new street cleaning program, but if you park in the city, you might have to move your car because of it. Street cleaning signs are popping up in a number of Philadelphia neighborhoods. Each one has a certain day and time slot on it.
The time slots are when drivers won’t be able to park so crews can be out and clean the streets.READ MORE: Enhanced Risk For Severe Weather Across Philadelphia Region Monday Afternoon
“This initiative helps to reduce trash and litter conditions in the city’s most vulnerable communities,” Acting Managing Director Vanessa Garrett-Harley said. “The areas selected have been identified as requiring additional city services to supplement cleaning efforts.”READ MORE: All Eyes On Pennsylvania Primary As Tuesday's Election Day Approaches
