The Frankford community will hold an UnLitter Us Frankford outdoor rally and celebrate the Northeast neighborhood’s recognition as one of the first and largest Litter Free Zones in Philadelphia . A large crowd of Frankford residents and business and community leaders will join together outside the Holiday Thriftway- an UnLitter Us Business Ambassador and community hub – for eco-friendly activities and to learn about how to keep Frankford, and all of Philadelphia, clean, safe and beautiful.
The three-hour outdoor rally will feature music, food and refreshments and a new SEPTA hybrid bus. City, state and business leaders will gather together to make remarks and congratulate the Frankford community on their commitment to creating a clean neighborhood and Litter Free Zone recognition. Speakers will also discuss the economic and safety benefits of a litter-free community. Event attendees will have an opportunity to sign-up for the City’s Philadelphia Recycling Rewards and UnLitter Us programs.
UnLitter Us Frankford will provide a number of visual and interview opportunities. The rally is being held in conjunction with a Frankford community cleanup, which will take place the following day on Saturday, October 2.
