Non-emergency

    Effective at 9.am., the snow emergency in Philadelphia has ended. But Mayor Michael Nutter’s still got some tips for dealing with the five inches of white stuff you shoveled off your sidewalk this morning.

    Shovel a 36-inch wide path on your sidewalks or expect a fine from the city.

    Park as far away from corners as you can so the plow trucks can turn easily.

    Trash is on a one-day delay, and those with rear driveway pickup should leave their trash and recycling on the curb.
