Passyunk Neighborhood Daily Cleaning Program

The Passyunk Avenue Corporation neighborhood sidewalk cleaning program is run in coordination with the East Passyunk Avenue Business Improvement District and is managed by ABM Janitorial Services.
The primary focus of cleaning activities will be East Passyunk Avenue, from Federal Street to Broad Street, the location of the majority of the real estate that PARC owns and leases for commercial and residential uses. This commercial corridor will be cleaned daily.
The surrounding residential neighborhood which is bounded by Ninth Street (east), Snyder Avenue (south), South Broad Street (west), and Federal Street (north) is also included in the cleaning program. The frequency is determined by need and request from neighbors.
