Frankford to Get Big Bellies

We are excited to announce that Frankford Avenue is getting BigBellies! Over the next few weeks, the Streets Department will be removing the old wire basket trash cans along the Avenue, between Church and Bridge, and will be replacing them with approximately 35 Big Belly trash cans and 15 recyclers.

Powered by solar energy, the BigBellies compact the trash, allowing them to hold up to five times as much as the old trashcans.  The switch to BigBellies will help keep our sidewalks and streets cleaner while also improving the aesthetics of Frankford Avenue.

A Big Thank You To Councilwoman Maria Quinones Sanchez and Deputy Streets Commissioner Donald Carlton for your advocacy and support in keeping our commercial corridor clean and welcoming!!
