November is over and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the results from our 30 Days to Cleaner Streets campaign! In fact, we had so much fun leading this campaign that we are going to keep it going all year round. From now on, you can participate by clicking on the “Cleaner Streets Campaign” tab on our website under “Programs.”
What did we pick up off the streets (and keep out of our waterways) this month? Participants found:
Athletic tape, bank deposit envelopes, beer/soda cans, bubble wrap, candy, a CD, chip bags, cigarette packaging, coffee cups, a dust mask, flyers, food wrappers, glass bottles, headphones, a license plate frame, napkins, newspapers, packing material, paper towels, papers, a pizza box, a planter, plastic bags, plastic bottles, plastic cups, plastic utensils, postcards, takeout containers, tissue paper, and wood.
Participants covered a wide area including areas outside of our watershed. We picked up trash in Northwest Philadelphia, Northeast Philadelphia, East Falls, Center City, West Philadelphia, Cheltenham and Plymouth Meeting. Check out all the places we found trash Trash Map!

By a huge margin, plastic bottles were the most common items found. William Shatner’s “The Transformational Man” CD remains the most unique item found.
Thank you again to all who participated! Don’t forget, you can keep adding to our trash map here. And stay tuned — we’ll be running another 30 Days contest in the future!
