About the Initiative.

Philadelphia is working hard to make a cleaner, safer city for all.

Philadelphia is working hard to make a cleaner, safer city for all. As an integral part of that mission, this site will serve to not only provide a dynamic litter index, but to bring together the resources and next steps you can take to make a difference and help the City achieve its zero waste and litter vision. So whether you’re a resident, small business, or neighborhood school—do your part. Be the one to make zero happen.

The Zero Waste and Litter Cabinet is an interdepartmental effort to continually reduce the waste entering landfills or conventional incinerators, combat litter, and enhance the cleanliness of streets and public spaces. Composed of major City departments and agencies, City Council representatives, community stakeholders, and chaired by the Managing Director’s Office, the Cabinet will create subcommittees focusing on five target areas to make Philadelphia a less littered, zero waste City.
