Cheltenham Shopping Mall Litter Photo Survey

In the Spring of 2013 I did several litter photo surveys in the Cheltenham shopping malls to try to determine the source of trash in Rock Creek, a small tributary of the Tookany – Tacony – Frankford Creek. You can find my reports on these surveys here, herehere and here.

I did a quick check-up on 2 of the Cheltenham malls on 4/21& 24/14 to see how the Township has progressed in the past year.

A few lessons:

  1. Philadelphia is not alone, Cheltenham also has a serious litter problem in some areas
  2. Commercial area litter is a major problem
  3. Litter is a water pollution problem. Rock Creek is just one example of  litter strewn creeks in the Philadelphia area.
