They used to have two people follow the truck with a shovel and a broom.

I know they are low staffed right now and having issues and I also understand that there is a weight limit for them so they maintain worker safety which means they wouldn't be picking up huge illegally dumped things but if there were just two people following every truck with a shovel and a broom, litter would get a good elimination once a week on every street in Philadelphia.

Yes, I'm not talking large dumped objects and I'm talking pre-pandemic. Things like a Gatorade bottle etc.

Yeah for sure, when I was a kid, there was always a broom/shovel team following all of the trucks
