Clean & Green

SSWBA sponsors an annual cleaning and tree pit remediation event for local businesses. We work with SOSNA and Terracycle to provide cigarette butt dispensers through SOSNA's "Hold Your Butts" Campaign and with SOSNA to provide drain decals for Delaware/Schuykill River storm drains. We work with PHS's Tree Tenders to create a tree canopy along the corridor to make it pleasant to park your car, stroll, or dine al fresco. We work with the City of Philadelphia to appropriately place Big Belly trash receptacles and tandem Recyling bins.
