During our recycling program we meet people who want to recycle, but are sometimes doing it wrong. As much as we'd like to maximize what we can recycle the following list is a list for curbside recycling program in Philadelphia (per the Sanitation Dept.- though the "tips" are FOPP's): What to Keep OUT of the Bin These materials have little or no value as raw materials, damage recycling equipment, and can even injure workers. Please leave them out! * Plastic Bags (Tip - many supermarkets and some retail stores accept plastic bags for recycling) * Styrofoam™ Food/Beverage Containers and Shipping/Packing Material (Tip - the Street Department's Satiation Convenience Centers will take Styrofoam,but is must be clean and in a clear plastic bag) * Food Waste * Wet or Food-Soiled Paper * Waxed Paper Plates, Cups, and Takeout Containers * Greasy Pizza Boxes *Tissues, Paper Towels, and Napkins * Light Bulbs * Porcelain and Non-Container Glass * Cassette Tapes (VHS and audio) * Garden Hoses * Needles and Syringes * Electronics (Tip - the Sanitation Convenience Center will take TVs, computer monitors and other computer related equipment at no charge.

Around 5:30 p.m. on 1/31/2018, my doorbell rang when I didn't expect anyone. I saw a stranger through my peephole. My storm door was locked, so I opened the front door. A young black man in dark clothing and a knit cap tried to engage with me with a cheery greeting. I simply said "Go away." and closed the door. I immediately called my next-door neighbor, and he had been there as well. I called 911 with the report. My neighbor made the mistake of talking to him through her locked storm door, but fortunately did not fall for his scam. He told her that he was "from the gas company" and could help her save money. He told her to go get her gas bill and he;d show her how. She said no and closed her door. So, we are safe her, and I hope you will stay safe, too.

Back in 2015 there was a large Jewish community interest in establishing a Shomrim Neighborhood Patrol in the far Northeast Philadelphia area similar to how Shomrim patrols are organized in New York City. The City of Philadelphia Town Watch Integrated Services is interested in assisting the local Jewish community and organizations in establishing Shomrim neighborhood patrols in Northeast Philadelphia area. Please contact me at 215-686-1459 or email me at Gregory.Bucceroni@phila.gov for additional info. Thank you
