Keep Your Cat Indoors

Outdoor Cat Pictures | Download Free Images on UnsplashDomestic cats can make wonderful pets. But cats that roam outdoors, can have serious consequences. Recent estimates name cats as the number one unnatural killer of birds in the U.S.  Outdoors, cats are a non-native and invasive species that threaten birds and other wildlife, disrupt ecosystems, and spread diseases.

Cat owners can help to protect birds and other property by keeping their pet cats indoors. This practice is also beneficial to cats themselves. Studies have proven that indoor cats are healthier, safer, and live longer than their outdoor counterparts.  Check out the American Bird Conservancy to find out how to keep your furry feline friend safe.

QVCOG Glass Recycling Starts in Sewickley

The QVCOG is proud to announce a Pilot Glass Recycling Program for our fifteen member communities. Beginning Saturday, March 12th users will be invited to use a site located in Sewickley Borough’s Riverfront Park (300 Chadwick St, Sewickley, PA 15143) free of charge. The QVCOG anticipates the Pilot Program will last approximately 3 months to evaluate the feasibility of establishing a second location (to be determined) as well as a shared cost structure based on each participating municipality’s population. The Rules and Regulations for the program can be found within the accompanying illustrations.
