DEAD SEA, Jordan - Driven by its commitment to build on Hilton Worldwide's legacy of operating responsibly and making a positive impact on its business and communities, King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Center managed by Hilton, ("KHBTCC"), is extending its sustainability agenda by launching a property-wide recycling program.

This activity adds to the Center's existing procedures and will involve the installation of containers to collect a wide range of recycled materials including paper, cardboard, metal, plastic and wooden waste.

As part of the new initiative, KHBTCC's staff will be trained to adopt new behaviors and lessons on the best methods of disposing recyclable waste. The convention center's staff will also regularly monitor the operation and make sure everything possible is being done to effectively reduce environmental impact across all departments.

Naif Zureikat, general manager, King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Centre managed by Hilton, said: "This initiative further supports Hilton Worldwide's "Travel With Purpose" mission and reflects our commitment to live sustainably through the measurement, analysis and improvement of our use of natural resources".
