Philadelphia Debuts Tool for Real-Time Trash Collection Updates

This summer Philadelphia residents had to deal with trash delays amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, the Philadelphia Streets Department has a new tool called StreetSmartPHL that provides residents with up-to-the-moment updates on trash collection. The new GPS system shows the public pickup in real-time and allows for a check of every truck.

StreetSmartPHL will go into effect on Oct. 1, 2020.
