Mayor Kenney Can’t Even Pick Up the Trash

Thousands of Philadelphians have trash sitting out uncollected

For some reason the Kenney Administration has failed to tell anyone that had Thursday trash pickup that it would not be picked up.   All across the city those neighborhoods whose trash day is Thursday still have trash sitting out on the curb.  The 311 center is also receiving a flood of tickets from residents wondering what is going on.

A cursory look at the Street’s Department website shows nothing under its “News” section that residents should withhold trash (the last post was January 8th).   However there were no warnings issued to residents not to put trash out for collection.  Additionally, the Phila.gov website shows that trash collection is currently on its normal pickup schedule.

So if you’re wondering why there’s all this garbage everywhere during this winter rainstorm, now you know.
