Pwogram Pilòt Philacan

Bay rezidan yo yon lòt fason pou estoke fatra nan kay yo.

Osijè de

Anpil rezidan pa gen espas pou estoke fatra nan kay la ant mikro fatra chak semèn. Sa yo se tipikman kay san yo pa depo deyò, antre kay, oswa jete fatra. Pwogram nan Philacan ofri yon solisyon.

Philacan bay rezidan yo kapasite siplemantè lè yo bay bwat vil-posede yo ka magazen devan kay yo.

Pwogram nan ede tou:

  • Diminye debri ak fatra.
  • Kenbe rat lwen.
  • Fè katye nou yo pwòp epi san danje.

Trash can features

Philacan trash bins are sturdy units for household trash only — no recyclables. Their features include:

  • 35-gallon capacity
  • Wheels for ease of movement
  • Lids to prevent litter and rodents
  • Radio Frequency Identification Device (RFID) technology for tracking lost cans

Program participants can use the trash cans for free. However, the cans remain City property.

Program rules

Before you can get a Philacan, 75% of households on your block will need to approve your block's participation. Households can agree that their blocks should participate, even if they don't want to request their own Philacan.

Once you have a Philacan, you must:

  • Set the can out on your regular trash day.
  • Keep the can clean of markings and graffiti.
  • Secure the can to your property, if possible. The Department of Streets will not replace lost, stolen, or damaged cans.
  • Use trash bags.
  • Make sure trash doesn't spill out of the can.
  • Follow all trash rules and regulations.
  • Only use City-issued trash cans to store trash in front of your property.
  • Call (215) 686-5462 to let Streets know if:
    • Your can is missing.
    • You are moving. Each can is assigned to a specific address, so you won't be able to take the can with you.

You may be removed from the program if you violate the rules or regulations.
