From November 1 to November 30, 2010, the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed Partnership (TTF) led community members in picking up one piece of trash every day. We published the results on our Trash Map and highlighted trash finds each week on our blog.

Although November is over, we are still encouraging community members to pick up trash and post it to our map. Here is how you can show your support:
PICK UP TRASH, in front of your house, on your way to work or the grocery store, get the trash off the streets and into the appropriate receptacle!
Every time you pick up a piece of trash, take a picture of it and send it to us at or add it yourself to our Trash Map. Let us know your name, where you found the trash and where you disposed of it. If you can’t take a picture, that’s fine, just add the info to our trash map.
Please use your judgment and don’t pick up anything dangerous! Carry work gloves, newspaper, or bags with you so you can easily pick up trash without getting your hands dirty.
Let’s see how much we can clean up the greater Philadelphia area!
TTF is an innovative non-profit that is working to enhance the health and vitality of the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Creek and its watershed. Through educational programming, community outreach, networking services and project coordination TTF facilitates, supports, and initiates efforts to restore the health of the watershed, and to mobilize its communities as watershed stewards. By taking trash off of the streets we can prevent contaminants from being washed through our sewers or over the land and into our fragile waterways. By picking up one piece of trash every day, you can make a huge difference in the health of your watershed and your environment!
