#2. "RE: Activity in Philadelphia area" In response to Reply # 0
A new shark here. I live in Northeast Philadelphia and I remove signs as I take my long walks for exercise, usually on weekends.
I snagged about 20 of those coroplast abominations just this morning. I figure I've taken down over 100 since I found your site a couple of months ago. I seem to find a wide variety of signs: FINALLY, Affordable... Insurance Have a Computer? ... Will Buy Houses ... Computer Problems? ... Computer Wizard Screen Printing ... Lose Weight ... Phone Service, No Credit Check... SOLD ... Listings Needed (realtor) Lots of roofers, a few other contractors
The roofers' signs are the toughest. They have ladders(!) and place them too high for me to reach, even with a good-sized stick.
I've also gotten a couple that were printed on some kind of solid plastic (Plexiglas?). These shattered when I took them down, showering me in sharp shards, nasty!
I'm careful to cut each sign in half so it can't be reused and to dispose of them properly.
