You Asked:

I have a tree and trash in my alleyway, and would like to have it removed. Who do contact?

Cleaning of alleys, driveways, and tree cutting or removal from alleyways is the responsibility of the property owner(s). This includes all associated costs for services, repairs or reconstruction related to the alleyway, driveway, retaining wall or tree. These costs are shared by those property owners having deed rights and otherwise for the use of said alleyways, driveways, and retaining walls.

For cleanup the Cityof Philadelphia Community Partnership Program (CPP) will assist residents by lending supplies such as rakes, brooms, shovels for alleyways, driveways, parks etc. Click here for more information or to reach CPP by phone call 215-685-9558.
