[GreenYes] Re: Atlanta Airport Recycling?

David - you're probably already aware of the other good airport programs
around the county including Baltimore, Portland, SeaTac, Columbus,
Dallas/Fort Worth, San Francisco, San Diego, Houston, Minneapolis/St. Paul,
Logan (Boston), also the Port of Los Angeles Seaport. Anne Peters also
mentions Denver which has a growing program we evaluated a couple of years
ago, and is undergoing improvements as part of a city-wide greening

I can't answer your specific question but my firm did an extensive
integrated solid waste management plan for Denver International Airport last
year. Some of our foundational research benchmarked 4 airports' waste mgmt
programs. NRDC did a really interesting study of airports & recycling
recently too. Let me know if you'd like information.

I saw a plenitude of waste containers every 20 feet or so, but did not
notice any recycling bins whatsoever. (Not to say for sure that there were
none, but I sure didn't see any.) The waste containers automatically
compact the garbage - I was quite startled when I put my lunch garbage in
the container and it started to growl!

I'm working on a recycling project at the Philadelphia International
Airport. I'm just curious, for those of you at the NRC conference, how was
the recycling program at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport?

For what it's worth, does anyone have contact info for the folks running
that program?

Thanks for the help...
