Become a block captain

The city welcomes new block captains to organize cleanups and block parties, plant flowers and trees and remind neighbors of trash and recycling collection days and guidelines.

To learn about becoming a block captain, go to phila.gov, click “Services,” then “Trash, recycling & city upkeep” and “Become a block captain.”

A resident must circulate a petition among neighbors to be elected a block captain. You need 51% of the residents on the block to sign the petition. You can collect only one adult signature per household.

For more information or to find out if you already have a block captain, call the Philadelphia More Beautiful Committee at 215-685-3971. ••
