As part of the overall strategy to deal with fiscal strain, the City will no longer collect refuse twice weekly at 25,000 residences in North Philadelphia (see story). This practice has cost the City $300,000 annually and had been a curious annoyance to those who realized that Mayor Street's neighborhood was the only one with special refuse collection service. This is a small step towards a leaner City government that gets the job done without favoritism.
