    Fall bird migration is underway, and millions of birds are beginning to reach Philadelphia as they head south for the winter, newly hatched young embarking on their first migration. Bird Safe Philly is asking Lights Out Philly participants — and everyone — to turn off or block non-essential lights from midnight to 6:00 a.m. from August 15 to November 15 to protect migratory birds traveling along the Atlantic Flyway.

    In Philadelphia, nearly 17% of trash sent to the landfill is wasted food. This adds up to around 116 million pounds of food waste coming from commercial properties such as restaurants and other food service establishments. 

    In collaboration with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) Food Matters Regional Initiative, the City developed a printable and easy-to-share guide for commercial properties about the proper management of food waste in Philadelphia, with strategies listed from most to least environmentally beneficial. Food business owners can use these alternatives to dumpster disposal to reduce the amount of wasted food created and keep waste out of the landfill. 

    Reducing Food Waste

    Being vaccinated against COVID-19 results in an eight-fold reduction of risk if you’re fully vaccinated compared to when you are not. If you’re fully vaccinated, you have a 25-fold reduction of your risk of being hospitalized or dying from COVID. The COVID vaccines protect people very well and are the best way to avoid a severe enough infection that could end up in hospitalization.

    Simply put: the COVID vaccines work extremely well and are saving lives every day.

    The City has a vested interest in ensuring that all staff are protected as thoroughly as possible from severe COVID infection and death. That’s why as of September 1, the City will be instituting the following new policies listed below.
