Time to start planning the 2016 Delaware River – Bay Trash Trawl!
Here’s a quick trash photo survey of N 9th and Nobel Streets that I took on Saturday, January 3rd. This corner is a little less than 1 mile from City Hall.

Street and stormwater litter conditions vary across the City, with the TTF and Cobbs Creeks having the worst creek trash problems while the Pennypack and Wissahickon Creeks having less creek trash.
This map, prepared with ESRI’s ArcMap, shows the incidence of 2013 litter Code Violation Notices for the 5 small creek watersheds in Philadelphia.
Clearly, the Tacony-Frankford and Cobbs Creek watersheds have much more serious litter conditions than than the Wissahickon and Pennypack Creek watersheds.
