TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Tallahassee residents have a “greener” way to dispose of old Christmas trees this year. Four Points by Sheraton Tallahassee Downtown has been designated as a drop-off location for recycling the holiday trees. After removing all ornaments and decorations, community members are encouraged to bring Christmas trees to the drop-off location at 316 West Tennessee Street anytime between December 26, 2013 and January 6, 2014. The trees will be ground into mulch and used on the walking paths at City parks.

“Helping reduce waste is a part of our company’s culture, and we are so excited to be participating in this program,” said hotel general manager Bo Schmitz. “Christmas trees that would normally end up in a landfill will now be transformed into useful mulch that will go toward improving nature trails and walking paths in Tallahassee parks.”

By partnering with the City of Tallahassee in this effort, Four Points by Sheraton Tallahassee Downtown furthers its green initiatives program, which seeks to conserve resources and limit unnecessary waste through responsible business practices and environmental stewardship.
