2022 Neighborhood Clean-up


Until recently, Philly was the only major U.S. city without street sweeping. (And call us skeptical that the city’s new plan will actually work.) Because of that, most blocks have been on their own to manage the hoagie wrappers and Acme circulars that flutter down the street. Enter Glitter, an app that sends a cleaner to spruce up your block. Cost: $50 a week, which can be divvied up among however many of your neighbors you can cajole into joining you.
