Philadelphia 311 service requests for January, 2017 show that the number of illegal dumping requests continues to rise. The January, 2017 number of 1,277 illegal dumping service requests is 55% higher than the January, 2016 count of 821.
This is a not a good stat for hopes of cleaner Philadelphia streets in 2017. 2016 already had a 35% increase in dumping service requests over 2015 (link).
Here is the illegal dumping requests by Council District along with a count of photos submitted as part of 311 service request.
28% of the 1,277 illegal dumping service requests included a photo documenting the trash conditions.
