Dumpster Stank

The dumpsters on the NE corner of 2nd and Fairmount are foul. I live directly across the street and it really just hits you in the face. If I open my windows on the 3rd floor, I can smell it. There's also some black substance leaking from it that is attracting copious amounts of flies.

There's that alley (hancock I believe) behind all of those commercial spots where all the other dumpsters are. I don't understand why this one has to be where it is.

What should I do? Ask around to find out who they belong to, and politely ask if they could be moved?? Does that ever work?

I would start with the folks at Liberties Restaurant and/or the fresh chicken purveyor who owns the space next door.

Re: Dumpster Stank

its definitely not liberties dumpsters ... they have theirs in the back alley

Re: Dumpster Stank

Its sounds like a good idea… Lets move the dumpster onto Hancock st. Not sure if you noticed, there are houses there as well. I suggest that you contact the owner of the meat shop next to the dumpsters. You could also call the city. Not sure who but there is probably something on Phila.gov. Hope something works out. The smell is putrid.

I've always thought the stench around that intersection was the sewage line. It's like a wall of pew walking towards Spring Garden even on diagonal side of the street.

Re: Dumpster Stank

i couldn't help but notice yesterday how bad the entire stretch of 2nd street smells from green to poplar. if its not those dumpsters (i have always held my breath when i pass them - the worst is on a hot day) it's the overwhelming smell of sewage @ that corner.

after walking north as quickly as possible to flee the stench i got to brown and was hit by an even worse smell that i cannot even describe - just trash i guess, seemed strongest outside of the remains of 2nd street pizza. terrible.

fortunately i hit the overwhelmingly delicious scents of burgers and pizza coming from the Tap and Rustica, respectively. Now those are some smells I can live with!

Re: Dumpster Stank

if 2nd St Pizza was forcibly shut-down (various rumors as to why), wouldn't surprise me if there's still rotting food inside

Re: Dumpster Stank

yens,

This is the kind of quality-of-life issue that the city's 311 system can handle for you. Call 3-1-1. You'll get a ticket number for your report for followup. They will assign the call to the appropriate agency.

Re: Dumpster Stank

I live on Hancock Street I believe the dumpsters on Hancock Street now are from Palm Market. The dumpsters on 2nd have been brewing a stench for over a week. They need to empty and clean them and NOT moved in front of my house. Also there isn't enough space for the dumpsters on Hancock. There needs to be space for cars to drive through.
