Block captains work to make their block safe and beautiful. For example, they may:

  • Sweep walks and gutters.
  • Plant flowers.
  • Plant new street trees.
  • Help neighbors paint and renovate.
  • Organize block parties.
  • Remind neighbors of trash and recycling collection days and guidelines.

Block captains also organize block cleanups with the Philadelphia More Beautiful Committee (PMBC). Participating blocks have three organized cleanups in the summer months. PMBC can provide tools and supplies, street cleaning, and help with other sanitation services.

If you have questions or want to find out if you already have a block captain, call PMBC at (215) 685-3971.
