Settling some confusion over holiday dates for trash pick-up

    Does the string of holidays have you confused about garbage and recycling pick-up dates in your neighborhood? A helpful reader comes to the rescue.

    Does the string of holidays have you confused about garbage and recycling pick-up dates in your neighborhood?

    A helpful (and frustrated) reader points out to us that Phila.gov has a dearth of information about the subject. He had trouble finding the 2011 schedule.

    After some digging, he stumbled upon PhiladelphiaStreets.com and immediately found the correct 2011 schedule there.

    “Since this affects fully one-fifth of the residential population of Philly,” he asks, “don’t you agree it is a significant gap in city services?”

    Thank goodness someone is paying attention.
