Bartram’s Garden Cleanup

Watershed Cleanup

The Philadelphia Water Department’s first 2017 United By Blue cleanup, held March 7 at Bartram’s Garden, gathered nearly 2,000 pounds of litter from the Schuylkill shoreline.

Using heavy equipment, PWD’s Waterways Restoration Team also gathered 4,000 additional pounds of trash and tires dumped along the river. The trash removed included nearly 800 pounds of recyclables and a dozen tires.

Join an effort that netted 33 tons of trash in 2016.
