How should we get rid of all that litter?

"There should be more private contractors, where instead of it just being a city service, maybe we should pay more people to pick up more trash."

- Daniel Frank, 36, of Manayunk, who was visiting Chinatown, at 10th and Arch.

"I think the city could have street sweepers cycle through every couple of weeks. That would help."

- Victor Lewis, who lives near Ridge and Midvale avenues, in East Falls.

"They need to stop all the circulars from going out, all the menus, they bring them out every day. All the neighbors need to come out and clean in front of their homes. If a neighbor is too old, the younger people need to clean off in front for them."

- Donna Gaston, Democratic committeewoman in South Philadelphia.

"When I was growing up, everybody came outside and swept in front of their houses. If everybody took care of their front walks, you wouldn't have all this litter."

- Liona Spann, 28, in front of her mother-in-law's house on Christian Street
