Advanced Disposal Pitches in for the Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce Green & Clean Tallahassee Earth Day Event
Advanced Disposal, a regional integrated environmental services company, is celebrating this year’s 40th anniversary of Earth Day by sponsoring the Tallassee Chamber of Commerce Green & Clean Tallassee Earth Day 2010 event taking place April 22-24. The company is donating and planting a Christmas tree as part of the event, which will be lighted and decorated during the holiday season year after year representing the true spirit of recycling and reuse!
Tallassee residents and businesses are cleaning up the city – from their own homes, to the public streets and facilities, and everywhere in between. Advanced Disposal is providing two roll-off containers for the collection of non-hazardous waste, so everyone can dispose of what they no longer want without any charge. Residents who participate in the Earth Day event will receive a complimentary hamburger or hotdog lunch, donated and prepared by Stone’s Throw Landfill employees. The lunch and tree planting will take place at City Hall from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 24.
“It’s our way of saying thanks to our fellow community members on Earth Day,” said Trey Allen, general manager for Advanced Disposal’s Stone’s Throw Landfill. “We strive to make the city of Tallassee cleaner and greener everyday and hope that the Christmas tree will help beautify the city throughout the year and especially during the holidays.”
People can dispose of their waste in the roll-off containers located at City Hall and Tallassee High School football stadium’s parking lot anytime between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Auntie Litter will make a special appearance during lunch to teach kids and adults about the importance of keeping our community litter-free.
